APM BusinessLayerPlugin tracelog.svclog in C:\temp is growing rapidly

Overview

APM_BusinessLayerPlugin_tracelog.svclog in C:\temp is growing rapidly.

Environment

All SAM versions

Resolution

  1. Navigate to the APM Businesslayer config file, found at: C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\APM\SolarWinds.APM.BusinessLayer.dll.config
  2. Open this file in Notepad.
  3. Find the section <system.diagnostics> (it is closer to the bottom).
  4. You should see a couple of lines that look like:
    <source name="System.ServiceModel" switchValue="Off,ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true">
  5. Change the switchValue to "Off" anywhere you see it.

 

If the above steps do not work, try the following:

  1. Delete the entire <system.diagnostics> section from the config file
  2. Stop services
  3. Delete the temp folder (or the .svclog file),
  4. Restart services.
  5. Check to make sure the file is not re-created.
