I've noticed that the PURGE command in the new Adrci seems to work rather strangely. It does not seem to operate on the contents of the log.xml, but the actual file date / time. So, if my alert log gets messages throughout the day, then trying to purge a day will not work.

I ran a test, had some entries created, waited 30 minutes, created more entries, then issues a purge to purge everything older than 5 minutes. I did SHOW ALERT, and nothing was removed.

How is one to remove entries from the log.xml? We'll be putting this all into a shell script to help us manage / rotate the logs. Received on Sat Sep 10 2011 - 19:55:06 CDT
