Issue/Introduction

In the snmpcollector probe folder for example D:\nimsoft\probes\network\snmpcollector\poller.log file is > 50 G.

Is there an appropriate setting for this to be capped at a certain size, or rolled over?

 

Environment

Release : 9.0.2/ 8.51

Component : UIM - SNMPCOLLECTOR 3.5x

Resolution

Steps 

1)Disable snmpcollector probe 

2)Delete the poller log(s) in snmpcollector folder

3)Take backup of snmpcollector.cfg before changes

4)Add the following keys to the <setup> section in the snmpcollector.cfg file  or via raw configure

LOCAL_LOG_SIZE = 200 
POLLER_LOG_LEVEL = INFO 

->Modify loglevel to 3 or lower from 5

loglevel = 3 

5)Activate snmpcollector

Additional Information

POLLER_LOG_LEVEL can be assigned the following values : ALWAYS,ERROR,WARN,INFO,DEBUG,DEBUG2,DEBUG3,TRACE 

TRACE will log more information. ERROR will log all the exceptions. INFO will be a minimal version of TRACE.

 ** LOCAL_LOG_SIZE = 1000000 (or any value smaller than 10,000,000) Based on this value, the number of lines that poller.log can have is calculated. 

Number of lines poller.log can have = LOCAL_LOG_SIZE / 160 

By default, LOCAL_LOG_SIZE = 10000000
