Beacon activity log files

Hi,

Anyone had any issue with the 2020 R1 beacon (on v15.1) generating large number of activity log files?

Ours is currently creating over 4k per minute

Thanks

Re: Beacon activity log files

Hi @Smitty987 !

Are you seeing this behavior post the FNMS 2020 R1.1 cloud release? Or are you talking about the FNMS 2020 R1 cloud/OnPrem release?

Thanks!

Re: Beacon activity log files

Update on my question

It's possible that this is connected to the logging changes with the v15 beacon.

We had an issue with the beacon engine log file growing to unmanageable size (10gb in one instance)

Our servers were patched over the weekend and this seems to have prompted the generation of the large number of files.

This has now settled down to a state where the uploader can keep up with the generated files.

If you are having any patching it may be prudent to shut down FlexNet for the duration. 

We have never had an issue when previous patching was carried out.

Hope that helps someone 🙂

Cheers
