Purge large log files
You should check the size of the log files in FH before starting the upsize. If the files are large (nearing 2 GB in size), you may want to purge them to increase the speed of the upsize process.
- In Windows Explorer, navigate into FH installation directory
In this directory, locate the following files, and note their corresponding file size.
User login history log
Database audit log
Export and import to station log
Custom data export (for example, NEMSIS)
External data import
Mobile import/export log
Automated task log
(If any of the files are large) Purge the log files.
Choose Administration → Administrative Options.
The Administrative Options dialog box appears.
Click the Database tab, and then the Backup & Logs sub-tab.
For any log files that were large, in the corresponding log file field on the Backup & Logs sub-tab, change the value in the days field.
A value of zero (0) indicates that a log file is not being purged. A value greater than zero is the number of days the log file accumulates data before it is automatically purged.
- Click OK.
Log out of FH, and then log back into FH.
Any log files that meet your new days criteria are purged.
Note: Logging back into FH may take a few minutes as large log files are purged.
