CA Workload Automation AE - Scheduler (AutoSys)


Autosys is logging lots of trace/debug information into the $AUTOUSER/out/as_server.<instance>.log file.

How can we turn off this currently unnecessary logging?


All Supported Releases of AutoSys


There is no way to turn off this as_server logging.

It is hard coded and not driven by variable ISDBGACTIV.
