The tCell agents use a logging strategy known as log rolling. Log rolling limits the size of the output log file. When the log file is filled, the agent creates a new log file. Further logging writes to this new file.
The default maximum size of a log file is 1 MB. To change this limit, use the LOG_FILE_MAX_SIZE_MB environment variable or the
logging_options.max_file_size config file property. See Server Agent Options for more log-related config file properties.
A log directory can contain a maximum of 10 log files.
tCell agents have the default log directory
tcell/logs, except for the following:
- .NET Agent, version 2.2.1 and greater, has the default log directory
C:\ProgramData\Rapid7, inc\tCell .NET Agent\[ApplicationName]\Logs.
- IIS Agent, version 2.0.0 and greater, has the default log directory
c:\ProgramData\Rapid 7, inc\tCell IIS Agent[IIS application id], where application id resembles LM\W3SVC\1.
