Dear expert,

I'm newbie in oracle, I have a problem regarding the listener log files under alert directory and trace directory(please refer to below). As the oracle installation partition size only 10GB, I have to manually delete the log files under alert directory and trace directory.

Is that anyway for oracle to auto compress the log files and only keep for 5days and it will be automatically deleted? Please advice !!! your help is much appreciate!!!
THanks!


oracle@OLP:/oracle/app/diag/tnslsnr/OLP/listener/alert>
oracle@OLP:/oracle/app/diag/tnslsnr/OLP/listener/trace>

For current situation is
OLP:/oracle/app/diag/tnslsnr/OLP/listener/alert # ls -lrt
total 8188
-rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 3003540200 Jan 14 19:14 log.xml

as you see, the above log already consume about 3GB. Need your advice!

No but there are many scripts do to it.
You'll find them here in Unix forum or on the web.
Come back if you are unable to find any.

The standard UNIX / Linux tool that does that is logrotate
