Goal

By default, when you start a WebLogic Server instance in development mode, the server automatically renames (rotates) its local server log file as SERVER_NAME.log00001, where SERVER_NAME the name of the server. For the remainder of the server session, log messages accumulate in SERVER_NAME.log until the file grows to a size of 500 kilobytes.

Each time the server log file reaches this size, the server renames the log file and creates a new SERVER_NAME.log to store new messages. By default, the rotated log files are numbered in order of creation filenamennnnn, where filename is the name configured for the log file. You can configure a server instance to include a time and date stamp in the file name of rotated log files.

By default, when you start a server instance in production mode, the server rotates its local log file whenever the file grows to 5000 kilobytes in size. It does not rotate the local server log file when you start the server. For more information about changing the mode in which a server starts, see Change to production mode.
