    Questions about tomcat logs

    peter79 Enthusiast



      I was clearing up some disk space on my vCenter server (I'm running 4.1.0 258902) and I found some massive log files (one in particular was over 1 GB) in the tomcat logs directory (c:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\logs\).


      As far as I'm aware tomcat is the webserver that vCenter uses, we done use web access so I'm confused as to where this log came from.  I have a few questions.


      What is the purpose of these logs?

      What could generate such a large log file?

      Is there a way to prevent a log this size bieng generated?


      Thanks in advance guys.
