How to Prevent the 'WLS_DIAGNOSTICSxxxxxx.DAT' file (under the DOMAIN_NAME/servers/SERVER_NAME/data/store/diagnostics folder) From Growing Too Large (Doc ID 965416.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 06, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 9.2 to 10.3
Oracle WebLogic Server - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Archive component of the WebLogic Diagnostic Framework (WLDF) captures and persists all data events, log records, and metrics collected by WLDF from server instances and applications running on them. One can configure WLDF to archive diagnostic data to a file store or a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) data source. If choosing to archive diagnostic data to a file store, this file would stored in DOMAIN_NAME/servers/SERVER_NAME/data/store/diagnostics.

Under some conditions, these archived files may continue to grow larger and can not be removed automatically if one has not done special configuration. e.g., if JDBC connection profiling is enabled, etc.
