Question: Is there a recommended process to cleanup the "*.out" files in the /var/opt/novell/log/ncs/ directory?

Question: When is it safe to manually remove them?


The /var/opt/novell/log/ncs/*.out files are limited to 12000 lines, once they hit this size it will keep the most recent 6000 lines and remove the rest.

The most recent activity is appended to the end of the log.

If the logs need to be deleted you can do that at any time the next time the resource is onlined/offlined/monitored on that node they will be recreated.
