How to Change the Default Number of Weekly Log Archives Maintained by Secure Global Desktop

(Doc ID 1187268.1)

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 4.2 to 5.1 [Release 4.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the default configuration of Secure Global Desktop (SGD), the tarantella archive command is automated to run on a weekly basis, and designed to maintain history over the seven most recent executions.  Records are maintained in a FIFO-like queue, and organized by numbered subdirectories under the <INSTALL_DIR>/var/log directory.

NOTE: By default <INSTALL_DIR> for Secure Global Desktop is /opt/tarantella

Depending on usage, this default value may be too small, or simply too large.   Under normal operation, this may collect up to 7 weeks of runtime logs--in a high volume environment, this may represent a significant amount of disk space. 

Fortunately, the default configuration is relatively straightforward to change.
