When are Logs moved to Archived Logs?

Hi everyone,

I have a QS 3.2.2 multinode installation with Shared Persistence.

Today I was looking at the Logs folder on the central node, and I found that there are still logs from over a month a go.

I thought that Logs were moved to Archived Logs every day/at every service restart (all nodes have been restarted recently).

So, my question is: when are Logs moved to Archived Logs?

Many thanks,

Riccardo

Re: When are Logs moved to Archived Logs?

When one of three conditions are met:

  1. Service Restart
  2. The log reaches 8MB
  3. Every 12 hours

Hi Levi,

many thanks for your reply.

Another question: is there a reason why the logs are not moved to archived logs even if I'm definitely sure that two of these conditions have been met?

Many thanks,

Riccardo

What log in particular? e.g. C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\......txt?

Script logs, those found in the folder C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Script\*.txt

Ahh. So those logs are a bit special in some ways.

There are two ways to reload apps:

  1. In the Hub
  2. From the QMC (as a task)

Script logs from (1) go to C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Script\ and do not get archived.


Script logs from (2) go to C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Script\ while the reload is occurring then get archived.

Ah, I see.

All clear, many thanks Levi!
