Watcher Should Not Be Included In Rollover Manager (Doc ID 2318393.1)

Last updated on MARCH 14, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On a new Messaging Server system, the watcher log is being managed by the rollovermanager.


On a newly upgraded Messaging Server test box, the following is seen when the contents of the watcher log is viewed:

root@host1:/opt/sun/comms/messaging64/log# cat watcher
[16/Oct/2017:00:00:00 -0400] host1 rollovermanager[14036]: General Information: Log created (1508126400)

This behavior seems like a bug, as the watcher log grows very slowly and daily rotation could easily loose old information.

Also, prior to Messaging Server, rollovermanager did not manage the watcher log, so this would be the expected behavior now.


Upgraded to Messaging Server
