Re:Re: DCLOG MessageS - new thread

I notice you are sending DC999009 and DC259001 (logged on and signed
off) messages to the log. We have something like 7,000 registered users
- but only a HWM of currently signed on users of 600+ (max of 660) - so
they are constantly jumping in and out of the system. This generates an
awful lot of output to the log and makes it difficult to find messages
that pertain to application and/or system problems - not to mention
possible performance implications (although log output is not
journalised it can become a bottleneck at peak times - a bit like the
old hard copy system console logs in the very old days).

So after each upgrade to the message area we change the definition of
these, and a few other messages, to suppress the output to the log. User
signons are recorded to SMF by our signon processing for audit purposes
- we don't worry about signoff. I don't know if others do anything
similar or have even thought about this - so I thought it was worth
