You may wish to limit the CA Directory logging for additional performance gain or limit disk impact for ongoing use.


An example to focus DSA logging to the primary value logs:  trace, alarm, warn; but close the other logs that are enabled by default.





# DSA trace log - Used for debugging

set trace-log = "logs/$s_trace.log";

set trace = error;

set rollover-trace-log = true;

# DSA alarm log

set rollover-alarm-log = true;

set alarm-log = "logs/$s_alarm.log";

# DSA Query Log - Disabled

set query-log-advanced = none;

# DSA Update Log - Disabled

set update-log-show-values = false;

# DSA Time Log - Disabled

set time-log-search-threshold = none;

set time-log-update-threshold = none;

# DSA Alert Log

set alert-log = "logs/$s_alert.log";


# Daily warning, statistics, diagnostic & summary logs

set warn-log = "logs/$s_warn.log";

#set stats-log = "logs/$s_stats.log";

#set diag-log = "logs/$s_diag.log";

#set summary-log = "logs/$s_summary.log";


# Disable logs via close command, re-enable when debugging performance of CA Directory

close summary-log;

close diag-log;

close stats-log;
