Business Service Manager 4.5


The formula.trc in the logs directory, will by default, de-duplicate a large number of identical messages.

For instance, if the message "Remote services stopped." was going to print ten times in the logs.

The log would instead print "Occurred 10 times - Remote services stopped." once.

The de-duplication can be problem when troubleshooting issues, especially when writing custom Formula scripts.


Add to the file ../config/, if the file does not exist, create it, line:


Where 1000 is the number of duplicate message than need to occur before de-duplicate occurs.

You could make the value of the property, 1000 or any number that will allow you to troubleshoot your issue.
