Aem dispatcher.log size surges suddenly





Our systems dispatcher.log file size surges suddenly. Even after nullifying the file, it increases upto 500mb/min. This file eats all the disk space in the dispatcher server. 

Can anyone advice how to resolve this issue. 


Thanks in advance.

Hi @karthikfordreal 


You should check for few things on why the logs are filling at this rate:

  1. Check if the log level for dispatcher logs is ERROR, not DEBUG or TRACE. TRace can produce  a lot of lines of log for a single request. Log level can be changed from httpd.conf or apache2.conf file by changing dispatcher global configuration 
    <fModule disp_apache2.c>
    DispatcherConfig conf/dispatcher.any
    DispatcherLog logs/dispatcher.log 
    DispatcherLogLevel 0 DispatcherNoServerHeader 0
    DispatcherDeclineRoot 0 DispatcherUseProcessedURL 0 DispatcherPassError 0 DispatcherKeepAliveTimeout 60 </IfModule>
    Make sure DispatcherLogLevel is 0 or ERROR
  2. Try to analyse what type of requests are filling up the logs whether there are logs of flushing/invalidation of content request or page request etc. Then try to work on that part, you might new an extra pair of dispatcher/publisher if single publisher is serving a lot more than its capacity.

Hope it helps!
