Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6350) Provide a rolling file implementation of derby.log
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 00:13:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6350?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13778268#comment-13778268

Brett Bergquist commented on DERBY-6350:

You are not doing anything wrong Mamta, I did something wrong.  I wrongly assumed that "derby.system.home"
property would always be set.  The default for this uses a patter of "%d/derby-%g.log".  
The "%d" indicates that the rolling log file should be in the directory pointed to by 'derby.system.home'
system property.  I did my testing with the network server startup of derby and it seems that
the embedded start as from IJ does not set this property. 

I see in your output 'derby.syste.home=null' which gave the clue.

I will have to investigate more to determine how to reliably find where the directory where
the log file should be located.  

As a test, I started IJ after setting DERBY_OPTS="-Dderby.system.home=/Users/brett/derby"
and then IJ worked correctly.

> By default, derby.log grows without bounds if the derby.infolog.append property is set
to "true".   Setting this to "true" helps in a hands off production environment to ensure
that if Derby restarts, the derby.log which might contain important information is not lost.
 On the other hand, when set the "true" the derby.log grows without bounds.  This is problematic
in a long running system.  
> What is really needed is the ability to have a rolling derby.log file support where the
maximum file size and maximum number of files can be specified.  Derby has the ability to
configure the location of the log file (ie. derby.stream.error.file) and also two methods
of redirecting the error stream (.ie derby.stream.error.method and derby.stream.error.field).
 There is no standard implementation that supports a rolling derby.log however.
> This facility should be part of the core Derby system so that it works in both embedded
and network server models.
