Re: Log rotation and management

You can configure the context variable s_logrotationtime in 11.5.10 (maybe earlier) to control the rotation of the apache logs. The concurrent request set Purge Concurrent Request and/or Manager Data will purge logfiles related to concurrent requests and so on. I think there are similar parameters for the other apps tier logfiles. In terms of the db my understanding is that you are free to do the normal dba stuff for those log and trace files.
