Symptoms

Find advanced Business Service logging output written into two log files
- in Business Service log file .../Middleware/user_projects/domains/eSeries_domain_<app-name>/<hostname>-<app-name>.log
and
- in Server "eSeries-01" out file .../Middleware/user_projects/domains/eSeries_domain_<app-name>/servers/eSeries-01/logs/eSeries-01.out

Business Service log file <hostname>-<app-name>.log "rotates" as defined in related log4j.properties file
but Server "eSeries-01" out file - eSeries-01.out - DOES NOT rotate and grows in size ... might lead to partition running out of space ...

How to avoid writing Business Service logging into file "eSeries-01.out" ?

Steps to Reproduce:
------------------------------------------
1.) Activate advanced Business Service logging (e.g. SQL-Trace) via modifications in file
  <ep_root>/staging/custom/BusinessService/<app-name>.ear/BusinessService.war/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties
as follows - activate (or add) lines:
...
log4j.category.com.agile=ERROR
...
log4j.category.com.agile.abs.owh.adapter.SQLTRACE=TRACE
log4j.category.com.agile.abs.owh.adapter.JdbcAdapter=TRACE

2.) Redeploy Business Service

3.) Find advanced Business Service logging - SQL-Trace - output written into two log files
- in Business Service log file .../.../<hostname>-<app-name>.log
and
- in Server "eSeries-01" out file .../.../servers/eSeries-01/logs/eSeries-01.out
