Rotating the online message log

Enable, disable, or modify automatic rotation of the online message log file for the database server.

Prerequisite: For this action, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires HCL Informix version 11.70.xC3.
You can control the size of the online message log file by configuring automatic log rotation. When the online message log rotates, the database server switches to a new online message log file and increments the ID numbers for the previous log files by one. When the maximum number of log files is reached, the log file with the highest ID is deleted.

To rotate the online message log:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Logs > Online Log.
  2. Click the Online Message Log Rotation tab. You can enable or disable the task, modify the schedule, or edit the parameter that determines the maximum number of log files.
