Dataservices log files

The Dataservices XI based application creates lots of error,monitor,trace ( txt and idx ) files. Is there anyway, one can setup log rotate or an option to disable them?

Thanks

    Hi Sam,

    Just in case it is not clear where to set the retention period, here a KB that shows where in the management console you can do that:

    https://websmp130.sap-ag.de/sap/support/notes/1256658

    The method that will will implement the retention period is to have a background job delete the logs.

    Logs can take time before being deleted after you select the retention period (an hour or so..)

    You can set the log file destination and could put them to a zipped folder

    Regards

    Norbert

    Set Trace logs to no at execution properties while running the job. Increase the monitor sample rate will also help.

      Log retention will help to delete the old files and i guess thats the only option. Else you have to manually delete the log files or write a program to delete it.
