Rotation of .out log files created by node manager

Unfortunately there is no way provided with node manager or weblogic to rotate your .out log files created by node manager , you have to manually cleanup them or you can use  any of the below method to auto cleanup the same.

1st Method
----------
-----

You can redirect .out logs to the .log file and managed .log via admin console.
[ console > your_server > under logging tab ]

Fot this -

Go to to YOUR_DOMAIN/bin/nodemanager
Take a backup of your existing wlscontrol.sh
Edit it and change OutFile=$ServerDir/logs/$ServerName.out to OutFile=$ServerDir/logs/$ServerName.log






2nd Method
-----------
------

on Linux, You can change OS parameters in /etc/logrotate.conf file

Append below lines at the end

<out_log_file_dir_path>/*.out
{
copytruncate
rotate 4
size=500Mb
}

OR

Use command "logrotate" using cron to achieve, You can use it with copytruncate to rotate logs.


3rd Method
-----------
-----

Add option -Dweblogic.log.RedirectStdoutToServerLogEnabled=true to redirect .out logs to .log log file and manage it via admin console

[ console > your_server > under logging tab ]
