When troubleshooting UMP (USM) performance issues, you may want to increase the size of the portal.log if youre not getting enough debug output/information when accessing the portal.log diagnostics/url.


UMP Portal Log




1. Deactivate the wasp probe on the UMP system


2. To increase the size of portal.log edit the file portal-log4j-ext.xml:


<Nimsoft>/probes/service/wasp/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/portal-log4j-ext.xml  (look for MaxFileSize).


For example:


<param name="MaxFileSize" value="1MB" />


You could increase it to 3MB


<param name="MaxFileSize" value="3MB" />




3. Activate wasp.


Click on the hosts/devices/nodes/areas within UMP/USM to recreate any slow performance/timing issue(s), then check the portal output once again.
