QC Log Files
First off, let me explain we were having issues with saving QTP tests & this is how this other issue came about (we have QTP hooked into Quality Center). To fix the saving issue we asked our support group to recycle the web server thinking that would do the trick. They did this and now we can no longer even log into Quality Center. We found that our log files are 2G and 3G and the drive they were on (D:\) had no more space. The administrator wants to delete them and see if this frees up the space. Unfortunately we cannot open them to see what is in these Quality Center log files since they are so huge. Can anyone tell me what is normally stored in the log files? We don't have a problem deleting them but are worried it may delete something needed such as test results or the like.
Re: QC Log Files
What is in them depends on the level of detail that the admin request when they were setup. If you are the QC Admin then look in Site Admin and look at the server tab.
Max log lines of 10000 is about 3 mb. The QC Logs in Debug mode hold just about every action that happens.
I review the QC logs everyother day filtered on warning and errors. The Application Server Admin archives and deletes anything over 180 days old. HP support generally requires the Debug mode. That is the only reason I keep it on.
I have never seen and QCLog files that were that large. Are you sure that these are QClog or SAlog files and not something from QTP?
Re: QC Log Files
The QC log files can be purged thru deletion. But the problem likely is your QTP run results are stored in the same D drive. Everytime you run a QTP test, the result are stored there as well.
