Horizon Client generates log files in the ~/Library/Logs/VMware Horizon Client directory on the Mac client. An administrator can configure the maximum number of log files, and the maximum number of days to keep log files, by setting keys in the /Library/Preferences/com.vmware.horizon.plist file on the Mac client.

Table 1. PLIST Keys for Log File Collection
Key Description
MaxDebugLogs Maximum number of log files. The maximum value is 100.
MaxDaysToKeepLogs Maximum number of days to keep log files. This value has no limit.

Files that do not match these criteria are deleted when you start Horizon Client.

If the MaxDebugLogs or MaxDaysToKeepLogs keys are not set in the com.vmware.horizon.plist file, the default number of log files is five and the default number of days to keep log files is seven.
