Hi Ranchers

The websphere server 6.0 am using is creating the System.out log files for the past two-weeks. Can somebody tell me how to change the setting so that only current day log file is created in the websphere.

Thanks !

There are settings available to roll the logs, no. of logs to retain, their size, etc. We've done it for WAS5.1 by mentioning these parameters in log.properties in the appserver config on the AIX filesystem. Something like below -

log4j.appender.dest1=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.dest1.File=app.log
log4j.appender.dest1.MaxFileSize=10000KB
log4j.appender.dest1.MaxBackupIndex=1
log4j.appender.dest1.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout

The above approach is not date-based though.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
