listener.log file getting too big


Using Oracle 10g under Redhat Linux  X386_64

I noticed the listener.log file is getting too big. Actual size is 2 285 0684 . It does not cause any problem for time being but would it be a good idea if I empty it . If yes how can I empty it

Thank you

you can delete it with no problem, but you might stop the listener while the operation

You can also use the following steps to delete the listenr.log file by renaming it first.

lset Log_status off

mv Listener.log to listenerold.log (from the command prompt)

set Log_Status on
