Access Logging Max File Size

Since version 5.183

Both Payara Server and GlassFish Open Source Edition provides different ways to rotate access log files. On top of that, Payara Server allows access log file rotation based on file size.

Max File Size option provides a way to change the file size at which the Payara Server rotates the access log file. This option accepts an integer value specifying the maximum size of the log file, after which a file rotation will occur. If the value for this option is set to 0 rotation is disabled.

Using the Admin Console

To configure Max File Size option using Admin Console:

Max File Size

Using an asadmin command

Use the following command to set maximum size for access log files:

asadmin> set configs.config.server-config.http-service.access-log.maximum-file-size=5000000
