Configure Geodatabase Log File Tables (Data Management)

Summary

Alters the type of log file tables used by an enterprise geodatabase to maintain lists of records cached by ArcGIS.

Usage

  • This tool can only be run from ArcGIS Server machines on enterprise geodatabases in IBM Db2.

  • Only the geodatabase administrator can run the Configure Geodatabase Log File Tables tool.

Parameters

LabelExplanationData Type
Input Database Connection

A database connection (.sde file) to the enterprise geodatabase where the log file table configuration will be changed. The connection must be made as the geodatabase administrator.

Workspace
Log File Type

Specifies the type of log file tables the geodatabase will use.

  • Session log file —Session-based log file tables for selection sets will be used. Session-based log file tables are dedicated to a single session and may contain multiple selection sets.
  • Shared log file —Shared log file tables for selection sets will be used. Shared log file tables are shared by all sessions that connect as the same user.
String
Number of pooled session-based log file tables to be owned by the administrator
(Optional)

The number of tables included in the pool that the geodatabase will use if a pool of session-based log file tables owned by the geodatabase administrator is used.

Long
Create session-based log file tables in the TempDB database (Microsoft SQL Server only)
(Optional)

This parameter is no longer applicable, starting with the ArcGIS 10.5 and ArcGIS Pro 1.4 releases.

Code sample

ConfigureGeodatabaseLogFileTables example 1 (Python window)

This script can be run from a Python window to change the log file table configuration to use session-based log file tables created in the geodatabase administrator's schema.

In this example, the log file pool is 100 tables.

import arcpy
input_database = "c:\\temp\\ProductionGDB.sde"
log_file_type = "SESSION_LOG_FILE"
log_file_pool_size = 100

arcpy.ConfigureGeodatabaseLogFileTables_management(
    input_database, log_file_type, log_file_pool_size)
ConfigureGeodatabaseLogFileTables example 2 (stand-alone script)

Geodatabases in Db2 use shared log files by default. If you changed from the default setting and want to change back, you can run the following script:

# Description: configure geodatabase log file tables

# Set the necessary product code
import arceditor
 
# Import arcpy module
import arcpy

# Local variables:
input_database = "c:\\temp\\ProductionGDB.sde"
log_file_type = "SHARED_LOG_FILE"
log_file_pool_size = 0

# Process: Update log file setting
arcpy.ConfigureGeodatabaseLogFileTables_management(
    input_database, log_file_type, log_file_pool_size)
