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?

CA-WAAE 11.3.6 on Unix/Linux/Windows

There is no way to turn off this as_server logging.

It is hard coded and not driven by variable ISDBGACTIV.

Additional Information:

If this is taking to much space, you can set the LOGROLLOVER option in $AUTOUSER/config.<instance>


# Keyword: LOGROLLOVER=<value> 

# Specify when to roll over the Scheduler and Application Server 
# log file. 

# Valid values are: 

# OFF = Do not roll over the log file. 
# MIDNIGHT = Roll over the log file at midnight. 
# SIZE(n) = Roll over the log file when it becomes 
# larger than the value specified in number 
# of megabytes. 
# PURGE(n) = Remove all the application generated log 
# files older than the value specified in 
# number of days. 
# MIDNIGHT,SIZE(n) = Roll over the log file at midnight or when 
# it becomes larger than the value specified 
# in MB.
