How to restrict unwanted error logs or monitor logs in SAP Data Services/BODS?

Hi,

Currently the error logs and the monitor logs generated by my DS job are quite huge(1GB). I'm looking more towards having control over these logs where I can restrict the unwanted/unrelated error/monitor logs to get a reduced log file.

Note - I'm looking for the job log retention setting.

Regards,
Santosh G.

    To reduce the monitor log, increase the monitor sample rate to something where it doesn't log the default of every 5 seconds (so change like to every 2 minutes - so 120 seconds or something). Every 5 seconds is only truly needed when performance tuning or troubleshooting.

    To reduce the size of the trace log, make sure you only have the base traces on the job execution properties turned on (which are trace session, dataflow, workflow set to yes) on the trace tabe of the execution options of the job.

    Hope this helps.


    Thanks,

    No Arun, it is related to the job log retention. I want to control/reduce the error/monitor log size not delete it.
