The path should be the full path to the directory where you want SNF to write its log files. On high-performance systems this directory is often on a separate drive / file-system in order to facilitiate backups and minimize file system contention and fragmentation.
SNF uses a lazy-write logging mechanism to minimize problems with fragmentation and to optimize performance on busy systems. Essentially, a batch of log entries that has occurred over the past second or so will be posted in a single write event whenever necessary. This means fewer, larger write events are created by logging operations.
SNF writes these logs to the log directory:
- Configuration Log - Useful in verifying and debugging the SNF configuration.
- Status Logs - Useful for real-time monitoring and trends analysis.
- Activity/Scan Logs - Useful for examining detailed system activity.
