Delete rfcXXXXXXX_YYYYY.trc.log files from igs folder

Hey, guys,

We have a NetWeaver 04 installation over AIX 5.3 on which we run SAP BW. I noticed that the folder /usr/sap/<SID>/DVEBMGS00/igs has some rfcXXXXXXX_YYYYY.trc files which take something like 3-4GB:

I understand those are RFC Trace files generated when the IGS RFC Connection had problems. How can I delete those files? Can I delete them directly from OS level? Will there be an impact on the system if I delete the old files?

Have a nice day!

      Hi again,

      I saw these notes. I don't have problem with file size - files are around 10-12MB and this doesn't bother me. The thing is that the files are around 350 (both trc and trc.log).

      I attached two files from today:

      Dropbox - rfc1175560_01029.trc

      Dropbox - rfc1175560_01029.trc.log

      EDIT: I noticed that there are exactly 10 files per day. I had a trace file from today at 08:16, and now it is gone but there are some new ones. Is this some kind of a setting - to keep last 10 files per day?
