Webtomcat logs rotation schema


Article ID: 206475


Updated On:


CA Spectrum DX NetOps


Currently the webtomcat logs rotation schema implemented is different than the tomcat logs rotation.

The webtomcat logs gets rotated when it is restarted on the next day.


Release : 20.2.5 and previous versions


Starting on 20.2.7 (Spectrum 10.4.3) for both windows and linux, only startup logs will go to catalina.out/stdout.

As catalina.out/stdout will not have any logs size will not be increased, hence no need to rotate it.

All the webswing related log will go to webtomcat/bin/logs folder.
All the logs that are present in webtomcat/bin/logs will get rotated on every restart or when they reach 100 MB of size.
