Title:  Tape Log size is huge, is there a way to limit the Tape Log size?

Description:

For troubleshooting purpose support tech ask for the tape log and the size is huge. Is there a way to specifiy the limit for the Tape log size.

Solution:

The steps below will help in setting the limit for Tape Log file size.

Step1

Go to Quick Start in ARCserve manager console and click on Server Admin.

Step2

Right click on Primary or Member Server and click on Configuration.

Figure 2

Step3

Go to Tape Engine tab, select the option 'Limit Log Size By' and set the desired size.

Note

The Limit Log Size By value divided by the Log File Count value represents the maximum size of all chunked log files. For example, if you specify a Limit Log Size By value of 100 MB and a Log File Count of 10, CA ARCserve Backup chunks TAPE.LOG when it reaches 10 MB (100/10=10).

The default value for the Limit Log Size By option is 100 MB, and the range is between 1 and 2000 MB.

Step4

Click OK and exit the Server Admin dialog box.

Step 5

Restart the tape engine services.
