Application logs

Hi,

Certain applications in my server send their logs to /opt. Creating a separate mount point would be wiser in such situation. How to go about it? Does it need application downtime?

Re: Application logs

Hi..

If the logs are NOT used by anything, you can make changes to config file of the application and direct logs elsewhere.
You can also try moving (or use a cron for this) the logs to other place and then create a soft link from original place (/opt).

Regds..

Better ask your application team to change the path of your log. then create a saperate lv for the same.

if not able to change the applicaton then create a link directiory and put it in othere lv.

Re: Application logs

For the SVR4 filesystem layout, /opt should be read only. Configuration or possibly output files should be in /var/opt/.
