Bamboo Agent: How to configure <bambooHome>\temp\log_spool Folder?

Our agents have many log files in the folder:  <bambooHome>\temp\log_spool.

How to configure the expiry for this folder?


3 answers

In my opinion, this is an error from version 6.x.
we did not have the problems with 5.10:

The folders are on the agents not on the server. Our agents have the OS Windows. 

The content in the folders are log files from the build jobs running on the agent (current more than 30GB).
There is one log file for each job.

The log files are there  since we updated Bamboo from 5.10 to 6.1.1 in September 2017. Now we running 6.2.2 and have the still the problem.

Hi Torsten,

You have to manually delete the files because the expiry doesn't work with remote agents. Or you can script an automation to achieve this.

Hi Robhit

Is there any documentation about this folder?

And is it safe to remove them completely? (I'm disabling the agents first)

If you're on linux, you may use logrotate function to enable log rotation. Pls see this similar request for log rotation.
