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 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
