Keywords: Columbus, Acapella, logs, acc.log, log size, increase.
By default the acc.log can reach up to a maximum of 20MB before being cycled. In certain instances, in order to capture more information relating to imports, exports, or analysis of data on the Columbus server you may need to increase the log/file size limit for this Acapella log.
This can be achieved by editing the /var/lib/acapella/5.1.x/flags file.
The content of the flags file may look like this:
-log all 5 -log databundle 5 -log acc 6 -logfile 5.1.1/log/acc.log
To increase the file size, we need to add the "-logfilesize" argument. In the example shown below, the acc.log file size will be changed to 200MB before it is cycled and a new acc.log generated:
-log all 5 -log databundle 5 -log acc 6 -logfilesize 200 -logfile 5.1.1/log/acc.log
After amending the flags file, restart the Acapella service for the change to take effect:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/columbus restart acc
Then check the status of all services to make sure they are all 'OK'
$ sudo /etc/init.d/columbus status
