QDS log - Root_<Date>.log

Anyone know what is the usage of Root_<Date>.log in the QDS log folder?

I have a problem that the Root_<Date>.log is very large in size (6 - 10GB). HDD is going to use up all the storage just a few days.

In normal case, it should be around 1-2MB. Last week, it suddenly become 6-10GB large. It is horrible.

When I open it, I found that the following log are generated repeatedly.

9/4/2012 00:00:00.2022336InformationTRACE:Exited CheckAndStartNewThread Lock

Re: QDS log - Root_<Date>.log

If you look in the QVDistributionService install folder (by default in C:\Program Files\QlikTech, I believe), there should be a file called QVDistributionService.exe.config. Within that file, there's a line like:

<add key="Trace" value="false" />

It's near the bottom, under a line labelled *** Extended Logging ***. Can you confirm that the value is set to false?

Re: QDS log - Root_<Date>.log

Thanks. In fact, the problem is solved already.

I have turned on the trace log per QlikTech Support which will create such a large log.
