-on server option

Specifies a maximum size for the console log, after which the file is renamed with the extension .old and a new file is started.


{ dbsrv10 | dbeng10 } -on { size[ k | m | g ] } ...


The size is the maximum file size for the console log, in bytes. Use k, m, or g to specify units of kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes respectively. The minimum size limit is 10 KB. By default, there is no maximum size limit.

When the console log reaches the specified size, the database server renames the output file with the extension .old, and starts a new one with the original name.


If the .old console log already exists, it is overwritten. To avoid losing old console logs, use the -os option instead.

This option cannot be used with the -os option.
