How can the creation of file $LOGDIR/pc_ser_6nnn be suppressed / activated?
1A) To activate the detailed log file $LOGDIR/pc_ser_6nnn define $alephe_root/pc_server_defaults
setenv pc_transactions_log Y
1B) To suppress the creation of the file set variable to
setenv pc_transactions_log N
With this setting, the pc_ser_6nnn file will not be produced.
2) Restart the PC server to activate the changed variable (util w/3/3)
Note that it is the pc_server_6nnn.log file -- *not* the pc_ser_6nnn file-- which is used for normal analysis of pc_server problems.
The pc_ser_6nnn file can very occasionally be useful in re-executing a specific problem transaction for analysis. But in such cases, you can temporarily set "pc_transactions_log" to Y (and restart the pc_server with this setting).
The pc_ser_6nnn files are *extremely* large; typically, 10 times the size of the pc_server_6nnn logs files.
