Re: [Condor-users] histsory logging parameters

I would like to diable file rotation but there doesn't seem to be an indication as to what parameters to change to do this. Is there documentation anywhere with regard to this?

Yup, it's in the Configuration section of the manual. There's a lot of stuff there, so it can be hard to find things. Specifically it's in 3.3.2 Condor-wide Configuration File Entries

If this is defined to be true, then the history file will be rotated. If it is false, then it will not be rotated, and it will grow indefinitely, to the limits allowed by the operating system. If this is not defined, it is assumed to be true. The rotated files wil be stored in the same directory as the history file.

Defines the maximum size for the history file, in bytes. It defaults to 20MB. This parameter is only used if history file rotation is enabled.

When history file rotation is turned on, this controls how many backup files there are. It default to 2, which means that there may be up to three history files (two backups, plus the history file that is being currently written to). When the history file is rotated, and this rotation would cause the number of backups to be too large, the oldest file is removed.

I hope this helps.
