Benefit to maintaining development logs?
I have a development log for one of my projects that is now a text file in excess of 5GB in size. As this contains the logs from every query I've run for many months I feel the desire to delete/reduce it down a bit by eliminating some of the queries I did way back.
Are there any considerations / drawbacks in deleting old development logs? What do you do to deal with logs when they get big?
I clear them from time to time, usually if the app have no errors and bugs for a month for ex, I truncate development logs cause I really don't see what's the point of them. When I make modifications I again keep the logs for a certain amount of time to see if any errors will pop up, if not, I delete them as well. 5GB of logs is way too much I think.
Here is a topic about how to set up log rotation:
hope this will help you.
