    In site preferences for the Network Monitor, there is a Log History tab.

      I too am a little confused on 5.6’s loghistory.

      I have all my sites enabled via the Netmonitor and than nightly, via a ksh script, I issue the hcicmds:

      The monitor logs are working:

      ie. hcicmd -t d -p hcimonitord -c “cycle” for the monitor logs

      cycles the logs to the $HCISITEDIR/exec/hcimonitord/LogHistory folder

      I enabled LogHistory on one of my sites to test this out.  Here is what I am seeing.  After enabling the LogHistory, I bounced all processes and all daemons, assuming this needed to be done in order for it to take affect.  In my process directory before this, I had a .log and a .old file.  When I bounced everything, it created the LogHistory directory and the most recent log file was sent to the LogHistory directory.  The .old was blown away…nowhere to be found.   Then I went out there from the NetMonitor and performed a “cycle output”.  It did not create a .old file in the process directory but instead just moved the .log file to the LogHistory directory.  If this is the case, you may want to rethink some existing scripts you have in place that deal with .old directories.  

      Hope this helps….

      Ah, you need to bounce the process  😳 I also lost the .old log as well.  That part needs to be added in the help section…..

      I received a reply from support.  This function does not cycle the hcimonitord log only the process logs.  To cycle the hcimonitord log you can run this command:
      hcicmd -t d -p hcimonitord [code]hcicmd -t d -p hcimonitord

      that is in and running well..it was the location that  the process cycles were putting the logs….which was solved by bouncing the processes.

      Im all set and appreciate everyone’s help. This is a great Forum  ❗
