The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

Feeling a bit lost on this one, I am simply trying to set the RequestLogMaxSize option under SA 12 using sa_server_option:

call sa_server_option('RequestLogMaxSize','20k')

No matter how I format it or change it, I get "Invalid setting for option 'RequestLogMaxSize'" (unless I specify zero). I'm able to set it using -zs.

What am I missing? Am I not able to set it using the stored proc?

It appears that the server option is specified in bytes, making the 'k' suffix of the size an invalid input:

sa_server_option system procedure

If you execute the procedure as:

CALL sa_server_option('RequestLogMaxSize',20480);

It will work correctly. The k/m/g suffixes are interpreted as necessary from the command line parser.

Oh my gosh, you are right. It has to be entered exactly as you specified. I was simply entering 20000 to test without the quotes and the 'k'.
