ControlSuite: Shared Services and Cassandra creating large log files

Article # 3032052 - Page views: 96

3032052

Problem: 

Server hard disk may begin filling up by very large files (>500Mb) stored in one or more of the following folders:

C:\Program Files\Nuance\Shared Services\Cassandra\bin\daemon
C:\ProgramData\Cassandra\data\commitlog\

%SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles\Apache

Error:

This issue will not generate an error message within ControlSuite, but may result in free-drive space warning errors from the Server Operating System.

Solution: 

1.       Stop the Cassandra service temporarily.

2.       Stop the AppPool service within IIS temporarily.

3.       Delete the offending log files (or move to another location) stored in any of the following locations:

a.       C:\Program Files\Nuance\Shared Services\Cassandra\bin\daemon

b.       C:\ProgramData\Cassandra\data\commitlog\

c.       %SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles\Apache

4.       Locate the config file here: C:\ProgramData\Nuance\SecurityFrameworkService\Settings\logging.config

5.       Modify the ImmediateFlush parameter as follows:

6.       From {"ImmediateFlush": false, "LogLevel": 3} to {"ImmediateFlush": true, "LogLevel": 0}

7.       Restart the Apppool service, and the Cassandra service.

8.       Monitor the issue to ensure it has been resolved.

 

Please clean only the log files with the file extension *.log. Attached are a few sample names of the log files that are created in the mentioned directories and need to be cleaned up.
