Log files grow indefinitely, though slowly, under normal conditions, and need to be managed. In addition, SDK software can maintain up to 1,000 backup log files of each log. For example, if you are generating two log files, MYDM_en_US_UTF-8.log and MYDM_fr_UTF-8.log file, you can maintain up to 1,000 backup log files for the MYDM_en_US_UTF-8.log and 1,000 backup log files for the MYDM_fr_UTF-8.log.

You can configure the number of log files retained by SDK software. Chapter 8, “Managing Log Files,” discusses the management of log files, and describes how to “roll over” the files.
