Issue:

A log file named UDT_BusinessLayerPlugin_tracelog.svclog in C:\Temp consumes space on the disk.

Cause:

When ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true" is left in the dll folder, it creates excessive log files that prevents user from deleting existing files.  

Resolution:

This process removes "ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true"" from the dll config to keep it from creating excessive log files. Once the right values are in place, the user can now delete any existing log files.   

1. Stop all Orion services - How to Start/Stop Orion Services.

3. Create a backup of this file: SolarWinds.UDT.BusinessLayer.dll.config and place the file outside of the installation path.

<filter type=""/>
</add>
<add name="ServiceModelTraceListener">
<filter type=""/>
</add>
</listeners>
</source>
