Reload (all versions)


Some customers may have a couple log files show up in their /opt/beginfinite/reload/logs directory named (literally) ".agent.log" and ".event.log".  What are these for?


At this time, it is unknown as to which environmental factors would cause those logs to get created but they are not needed. 

Reload creates agent and event logs specific to each profile.  These particular errant files are a spinoff of that and should not exist.  Under some circumstances, Reload apparently isn't able to determine the profile name when creating the profile-specific agent or event log so the files get created without a profile name in front of the ".agent" or ".event" entry.

According to the developer, these files can be safely deleted.
