Client Session
Note: This parameter is valid only for interactive or batch clients. WebSpeed agents and AppServers will silently ignore it.
In the following example, the client will delete the log file debug.log, if it exists, and then open debug.log as the client log file:
prowin32.exe -p myprog.p -clientlog debug.log -clearlog
In the following example, the client will delete all the log files matching the name debug.log; such as debug.000001.log through debug.000003.log. Then the client will open debug.000001.log as the client log file, as shown:
prowin32.exe -p myprog.p -clientlog debug.log -clearlog -logthreshold 1000000
WebSpeed agents and AppServers will silently ignore the Client Logging (-clientlog) parameter. The broker handles the clearing of the WebSpeed and AppServer server logs, through the srvrLogAppend property in the ubroker.properties file.
