expand/collapse item About dynamic logging

You can dynamically start and stop full logging without restarting the ArcIMS Monitor and Application Server.

You should use dynamic logging for only short periods of time. Log files will revert to their original state whenever ArcIMS is restarted or whenever Spatial Server recycling occurs. If you need to change the state of the log files for long periods of time, you should enable full verbose logging.

When you turn dynamic logging off, a new set of log files are created using the settings defined in the property and configuration files.
