Truncating active log files (Doc ID 1007759.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
All Platforms

Goal

After being truncated, an open file may appear to return suddenly to its former size (or more).

This document explains this behavior (which is nearly as old as UNIX(R) software), and how to avoid it.
