Issue/Introduction

 A customer was seeing large growth in the EPA.log when running an EPAgent.  Customer wants to know how to shut off additional logging.



 How do you turn off logging to the EPA.log file?

Environment

All versions of EPAgent on UNIX.

Resolution

In the EPACtrl.sh file that is used to start the EPAgent, you can replace the value of this parameter. 

From:

LOGFILE="${WILYHOME}/epa.log"

To:

LOGFILE=/dev/null

 

This should not be considered as a fix to the problem, but can be used only as a temporary workaround until more research can be done to determine why the logs are growing.
