-os server option

Specifies a maximum size for the console log, at which point the file is renamed.


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

Applies to

All operating systems and servers.


The size is the maximum file size for logging console messages, 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.

Before the database server logs output messages to the console log, it checks the current file size. If the log message will make the file size exceed the specified size, the database server renames the console log to yymmddxx.slg, where yymmdd represents the year, month, and day the file was created, and xx is a number that starts at 00 and continues incrementing.

This option allows you to identify old console files that can be deleted to free up disk space.

This option cannot be used with the -on option.
