The lmsRelayer stores all of its activity in a total of 8 log files. The Relayer log files are stored in c:\winnt\system32. The log files are named the following:
LmsRelayer_<CompanyName>.log (Current log - After this file reaches its maximum size, it gets it gets renamed by appending " .1" as the file extension, and a new current log is started.)
LmsRelayer_<CompanyName>.log.1 (When the current log reaches its maximum size, this log gets renamed to .2 and all the subsequent logs below, if they exist yet, get increased by one.)
LmsRelayer_<CompanyName>.log.7 (This is the oldest log. It gets emptied when the other logs fill up.)
The first file is the current log file. When it reaches the user-defined maximum size, it is renamed to lmsRelayer.log.1, the contents of lmsRelayer.log.7 are deleted (if applicable), lmsRelayer.log.7 is renamed to lmsRelayer.log, and all the backup logs are incremented by 1.
The default maximum size for the Relayer log and all backup logs combined is 50MB. So, each log file will have approximately 6.25MB of space (50MB divided by 8 files).
To customize the size of the log files, follow the procedure below:
INFO [Thread-8]: Total space allocated for log files : 100 MB.
This property must be re-customized after reinstalling or upgrading the Relayer. A reinstall or upgrade sets this property back to the default value of 50MB.
Saving a copy of a relayer log file in the same directory can interfere with the backup logging mechanism (for example, c:\winnt\system32\Copy of LmsRelayer_SkillSoft.log.1) .
If you make a copy of a relayer log file, save it in a different directory than the current default log file.
