Client Log

Specify your settings for the client log files. The Client creates a log file in the logs subdirectory of the working directory for the corresponding data source. Both client programs (DBClient or dbutility) use this log file. Its naming convention is <prefix>YYYYMMDD[_HHMMSS].log.

DBClntCfgServer is a Client Console support program that creates log files in the same directory. DBClntCfgServer logs uses the same naming convention, but includes "_cfg" after the prefix.

Generate single output messages in log file (single_line_log_msgs)

Causes the client to generate all log output as single-line messages. This parameter exists to assist some log file analysis programs that fail to parse multi-line output messages.

Start new log on new day (newfile_on_newday)

Use this parameter to determine if the program creates a new log file, when it's created, and if the log file was created on an earlier date. A new log file is created when the date changes.

Switch log daily (logsw_on_newday)

Creates a new log if the client is running when the date changes.

Switch log on size (logsw_on_size)

Creates a new log file when the current log file reaches the size limit specified for Maximum file size. If new and old log files have the same creation date, a time is included to ensure a unique filename.

Maximum file size (max_file_size)

Specify the size limit of log files by entering a number and a suffix of K, M and G to indicate the unit of measure (kilobyte, megabyte, or gigabyte).

Filename prefix (file_name_prefix)

Specify a string (up to 20 characters) to change the default prefix "db" in the log filename. This can help you manage your log files if you if you have more than one data source. The specified prefix will be applied to both client log files and DBClntCfgServer log files.
