New Messaging Server tech article on BigAdmin. Synopsis:
Sun Java System Messaging Server provides logging facilities for the Messaging Server MTA, the Message Store, and services. The logging facilities provide you with time-stamped and labeled information about your system's messaging services. Using log files, you can gather message statistics, perform trend determination, troubleshoot problems, and so forth.
While the system performs automatic rollovers to maintain the current log file, you must determine and manage log file rotation aspects such as how large a single log file may be, how large cumulative log files may be, how many log files to retain, and so forth.
This article focuses on configuring log file rotation for the Messaging Server service logs, such as the IMAP service.
