Filename for rolled-over log files
To order log files and avoid name conflicts, OpenEdge uses the following format for naming rolled-over log files:
Log filename you specify.
OpenEdge adds the sequence number starting at 000001 and increases for each new log file until 999999, after which it rolls back to 000001.
Log file extension you specify.
In the following example the log file name is asbroker1.server and the log file extension is log:
Caution: Do not specify the filename with a sequence number in the Client Logging (-clientlog) startup parameter or for the related property (in the file). OpenEdge determines the correct filename and sequence number, based on the filename you specify.
