Configuration of the SSPR Debug log

Hi

the debug/logging data which can be accessed through the admin ui of SSPR is available as the file SSPR.log. In SSPR versions before 4.x this was created under tomcet/webapps/sspr/WEB-INF starting with version 4 of SSPR it is stored in a log directory in an individual sspr-data directory (i.e /home/novlua/sspr-data/log/SSPR.log)

We found, that this file only provides records of a few days (two, three day tops) - even if the logintoDB Parameter tells SSPR to store log information for 28 days! So this parameter does not have any influence on the logfile.

Can anybody provide information how the "duration" of entries in this file can be configured?

An other question is, since that file at the end is setup through TOMCAT if there is a way to use the Tomcat log configuration somehow to implement a roll-over of that file?

Kind regards,

Thorsten

The logs shown in the admin UI are actually stored and read from the LocalDB, so the LocalDB settings control the history and size of the logs viewable in the admin interface. Retention is set at the number of lines or time duration, whichever is shorter. The retention of the log files in the application path /logs directory are not configurable.

You should investigate setting up a syslog server to capture audit events for long term records. The event logs are intended for short-term debugging, not as a long term audit log of user activity.
