Pinned topic DataPower debug logging

‏2013-10-29T11:34:52Z |

Hello Experts,

I have enabled debug logging in our UAT environemnts which is being used heavily. I want to understands the effects of debbug logging on DataPower appliances. Will it cause any memory issue?

Regards,

Rahul

    On a couple of our services we have minor logging (e.g. 2 log events per transaction), and it it sent via a log target out to a remote syslog host.

    This doesn't seem to affect performance or memory loading noticably.

    Now, with full-on debug logging to a rolling set of files that reside on the RAID on the appliance I have seen significant performance affects. Not suggested unless you're really needing to debug something nasty.

    Thanks Ted,

    I have checked the memory usage of the box, on which debug is enabled. Below are the statistics and they seems to be ok. Also, I am monitoring the memory usage, since last few days, it seems to be constant with 16%.
