Enabling Advanced Proxy log Rotation for SGD Gateway using the logadm Utility (Doc ID 2454587.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document outlines an example implementation for regular rotation of SGD Gateway proxy logs using the Solaris system's native logadm utility. 

Disclaimer: there are several ways that a SGD Administrator may implement this functionality, tailored to the unique responsibilities of an existing deployment.  This guidance is provided AS-IS, and provided here as a working reference model. Interested administrators should take care to verify expected operation within a lab environment, prior to production deployment. 


The procedures outlined within this document are intended for an SGD Administrator, and requires administrative access to the Secure Global Desktop Gateway.  The example outlined within will alter the location and content of system configuration, as well as SGD Reverse Proxy log files. 

It is important to understand the implications of these actions prior to implementing this guidance within production deployments.
