Ppm/logs, ppm/reports are getting big

Jump to solution
Is there any supported way to remove old files/folders in the /log and /report dir?
Any recommendations on this topic?
Were running windows and explorer takes some time to list
the files...
I guess this will impact performance in the long run?

Hi Johan,

The best way to do this is to delete the reports from the Dashboard:

1) In the Dashboard, go to Reports | View Reports

2) Select the Previous Reports option

3) Specify the data range of the reports you would like to delete

4) Click on Search button

5) Select Check All option

6) Click on Delete button

This will delete the files associated with the reports. Use the default 50 results per page. If going to change this value and delete an extremely large amount of reports in one run, test this in the staging environment first to see what kind of cpu/memory spike this would take.

If space is the issue, these report files are not very large. Check under the PPM_HOME\reports directory to see how many files and the sizes of the files to determine how much memory can be freed up. Also, look under PPM_HOME/server/SERVER_NAME/log directory. The serverLog.txt file is the active log file. All other log files can be moved off the server and archived on another machine.

Regarding logs the only way do it is going to the folder where its stored and delete it manually.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Carolina.

We have regularly scheduled processes that delete log files after a defined period after requests and packages are closed. We also delete log files for validations after a defined period after they are created.
