Changing Replicate log directory location on Windows

Replicate writes log files to log directory within the data directory. Is there a way to change the location of logs directory?

 

Background:

We have stored data directory on NFS share for our Replicate setup on Windows for DR requirements. We want to send logs to Elasticsearch. We are using filebeat for this. Filebeat does not recommend harvesting log files from network attached storage. Which is why I would like to store logs on local disk instead.

I tried creating symlink to trick Replicate to write logs to local disk. But symlinks also do not work on network disks.

How about using WSL to get rsync capability then rsync with a simple bash script.  I think you can also do in powershell without WSL if that is more  your style.

#!/bin/bash
while true; do
inotifywait -r -e modify,create,delete source
rsync -az --delete /mnt/c/path/to/log/files/ /mnt/nfsmount/path/to/watcher/

Hi Prabodh,

No, you cannot have the logs written to a location other than ../data/logs.

This limits our ability to ship logs to external tools for additional monitoring. I wish there was a way.
