2479168 - How to delete the yymmddxx.slg file that create by -os database server option ? - SAP IQ


Before SAP IQ server logs output messages to the database server message log file ( .srvlog ), it checks the current file size. If the log message will make the file size exceed the specified size, 
SAP IQ server renames the database server message log file ( .srvlog ) to yymmddxx.slg, where <yymmdd> represents the year, month, and day the file was created, and <xx> is a number
that starts at 00 and continues incrementing.
The yymmddxx.slg file that renamed does not have a way that deletes it automatically. Therefore, there is a possibility that becomes full on the disk.
