Rotating the Vector Error Log
If the error log gets too large, the VWLOG_ROTATE system call can be used to close the current error log file, move it to a new file, and then reopen the old error log file (which is now empty) and continue to append incoming log messages.
For example: The following statement moves the error log file to archive1.log. Subsequent log lines are written to a new, empty file that has the same name as the old log file:
CALL VECTORWISE(VWLOG_ROTATE '''/opt/Actian/VectorXX/ingres/files/archive1.log''');
For more information, see VWLOG_ROTATE in the SQL Language Guide.
