ConsoleFile is the full path to the messages.log file. The maximum length for ConsoleFile is 227 characters. By default, no directory is listed.
console contains two comma-separated values that configure the messages.log file, as described below:
The path to the messages.log file, where InterSystems IRIS® data platform logs messages. Change ConsoleFile to specify a new location for the log file; however, the name of the log file must always be messages.log. If no value is specified, InterSystems IRIS writes to install-dir/mgr/messages.log.
ConsoleFile is the second comma-separated value of the console parameter.
You can view the messages log on Messages Log page of the Management Portal (System Operation > System Logs > Messages Log). To further configure the messages.log file, see MaxConsoleLogSize parameter.
Not in use.
Changing This Parameter
On the Advanced Memory page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Advanced Memory), in the ConsoleFile row, select Edit. Enter a directory path.
Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change ConsoleFile in the Config.config class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
