- The XPSSweeper logs appear to be very large with extra data. 

- The extra data appears to be additional tracing being executed even though in the end it reports no errors. 

- Why is the " XPSSweeper " command writing out a large log file with extra trace Information?


Release: Applicable to all the supported releases.
Component: SMPLC


- If the XPSSWeeper command is run with xTrace enabled, the XPSSweeper prints all the trace Information like " trace Federation transactions ", " trace XPS transactions ", and " audit log " Information

- Check at " XPS.cfg " file (XXXX\CA\siteminder\config location) and from " XPS.cfg " file and look for either " xTrace " is enabled or not. 

- If " xTrace " is enabled, this line will be present " CA.XPS::$xTrace= " line in the " XPS.cfg " file 

- Disable/turn off the " xTrace " and run the XPSSweeper command again, there should not be any extra trace information in the XPSSweeper log.

For more Information about xTrace review the documentation:
