RSA Product/Service Type: Appliance
|Issue||The database alert log for the Oracle database, which is by default located in /u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/avdb/AVDB/trace/alert_AVDB.log may grow to an unreasonable size which makes it hard to edit/handle it. It may also contain data from many years ago, which is unnecessary for database management and irrelevant for uploads to RSA Support.|
|Tasks||Archive the current database alert log and create a fresh new one.|
|Resolution||The easiest way to accomplish this is to simply move/rename the file and let Oracle create a new one.|
You can do this associated with an Oracle restart, or while the database is running.
All operations described here require access to the Linux oracle account.
|Notes||These instructions are mainly intended for RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Hardware Appliance customers and customers with Software Appliances with an RSA supplied database. Customers with remote databases are encouraged to contact their DBAs for this task.|
