Default Event Log Cleanup ?'s

Please Login to Remove!

Ok on the 7290 when you hold and type LGLG it shows the Event Log screen.. Can I clear this whole log or are there some files that I might need to keep?

Also when you click the thumb wheel click options it takes you to Event Logger Options.. and the first line is Mini Log Level.. you can change the option from Warning, Information, and Debug Info, is there a certian one/option this should be set on or does it matter at all?

When you have the log file open, press the scroll wheel and select Clear Log.

What does clearing all the event logs actually do? Besides hopefully clearing some memory.

is there any deficit to performance if we do not clear the log? Does it slow down the system having such a large log?

I can pull up the event log on my 7250. My question is:(or actually 2 questions are)

What does all that stuff mean? Does anyone have a cheat sheet?

Clearing the log is going to MAYBE give you 2k to 4k more free space. You'll never notice the difference for anything.

No cheat sheet for these. They're diagnostics meant for support and development.

It's safe to clear it, but again, you'll not get much free space from it, so why bother?

Several people have notice substantial increases in performance by clearing their event log and posted saying so.

Clear the event log, lock the handheld, unlock it, and go back in...notice how it's already starting again? So these people clear the event log every 30 minutes to 2 hours (depending on log level) so that they can get this performance increase?

You could probably get the same preceeved performance increase by deleting a long email message.

Basically you are clearing a single database that is only used for logging purposes. Not sure how that would cause a "substantial increase in performance". That would almost be like saying that if you have no memos in your memopad then you are going to have better performance than me because i have 10 memo's?
