Log database server messages to a file

By default, database server messages are sent to the database server messages window. You can send the output to a log file using the -o option. The following command sends output to a log file named mydbserver_messages.txt:

dbsrv12 -o mydbserver_messages.txt -c ...

You can control the size of the database server message log file, and specify what you want done when a file reaches its maximum size:

  • Use the -o option to specify that a database server message log file should be used and to provide a name.

  • Use the -ot option to specify that a database server message log file should be used and provide a name when you want the previous contents of the file to be deleted before new messages are sent to it.

  • In addition to -o or -ot, use the -on option to specify the size at which the database server message log file is renamed with the extension .old and a new file is started with the original name.

  • In addition to -o or -ot, use the -os option to specify the size at which a new database server message log file is started with a new name based on the date and a sequential number.

You can specify a separate file where startup errors, fatal errors, and assertions are logged using the -oe option.

It is recommended that you do not end the database server message log file name with .log because this can create problems for utilities that perform operations using the transaction log.
