    Re: Delete the old files - request and log files

    maylo

      Hello everyone,

       

      Did not want to open new topic just for one question, and I think this is the place to ask..

       

      After cloning, if I run Purge Concurrent Request and/or Manager Data it only cleans out and req files for target system (new clone), and we still have <sourcesid>_<hostname> directory with logs of old, source instance. Can we delete these old files manually from OS?

          Not correct.   Hijacking someone elses's forum thread for your new inquiry is poor etiquette.   You are not helping the original poster but are concerned only with what YOU are experiencing in your system environment.

          You post has now been branched away to stand on its own and to permit people to respond to YOU.

           

          ALWAYS start your own new post for YOUR questions.   Add to someone else's thread ONLY if you are attempting to help THEM.

            Hi Maylo,

             

            Can we delete these old files manually from OS?

            Yes, You can delete...

             

            Rather if you wish you could do a search from the Oracle base directory as <Source_SID>_<Source_hostname> (your source Context Name) and delete the directories.

             

            Hope this Helps!

            Best Regards,

                Thank you for your quick reply, so if we make clone, then delete <Source_SID>_<Source_hostname> source directories, will we still be able to see concurrent reqs from old instances?

                 

                Thank you in advance for you reply

                 

                BR, Maylo

                  Hi Maylo,

                   

                  The old concurrent requests are visible from the target instance with the help of the logs and output files in the INST_TOP

                   

                  When cloning, INST_TOP is not a must copy  directory to  the target system. But if you don't copy you will not have the source log and output files on the newly cloned instance. Therefore, deleting the files in the INST_TOP will remove the request files in the application level.

                   

                  Hope this helps,

                  Best Regards,
