Hi Simon,

Is there a way to disable Minimserver logging on Windows? I found that the ohnet log can be disabled by setting to none. However, there seems to be no option for the same on minimserver.

When set in it's fastest clock mode, my DAC often creates dropouts on disk I/O operations. As such, I am working to minimize any log entries.

Many thanks,

Setting the .logFile property to NUL: should completely disable disk logging. You will still see log messages in the log window.

Edit: This can cause problems and isn't a good idea. The correct setting to disable disk logging is the single character '-'.

Simon,

This setting definitely improved the dropout issue. Many thanks.

I've discovered that setting .logFile to NUL: (or /dev/null on Linux) can cause problems and isn't a good idea. The correct setting to disable disk logging is the single character '-'. I will add a check to prevent setting .logFile to NUL: (Windows) or /dev/null (Linux).

Hi Simon,

Many thanks for this. I'll give it a try.

Hi Simon,

Yes, this is better by far. Dropouts aren't totally eliminated but they are improved. I suspect the continued dropouts are due to other reasons further down the chain. Also, there is an increase in SQ with this setting. Everything is more relaxed. Many thanks for your help and attention on this.
