Issue/Introduction

- Looking at XPSSweeper logs we might notice they appear to be very large in size with extra data. 

- In looking at the extra data, it appears there is some type of additional trace setting 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?

Environment

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

Resolution

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

- If you check at " XPS.cfg " file (XXXX\CA\siteminder\config location) and from " XPS.cfg " file you can find out either " xTrace " is enabled or not. 

- You can see this " CA.XPS::$xTrace= " line in the " XPS.cfg " file If " xTrace " is enabled. 

- If you disable/turn off the " xTrace " and If you run the XPSSWeeper command again you won't get any extra trace Information in the XPSSWeeper log.
