We recently encountered a situation when the hawk\bin\eventlog.out file grew, until it ran out of disk space. This is a known bug: we can’t configure or disable eventlog.out file even if we don’t use Windows event logs monitoring microagent rules.

This has been fixed in Hawk 4.8.1 Hotfix 3:

1-83ZKPM
In the Eventlog microagent, the logging events in the eventlog.out
file kept growing and could not be turned off. This has been fixed.

You can download this or latest hotfix from the TIBCO support ftp server as Hawk hotfixes are cumulative.
To install stop all Hawk services, then just copy these files from the hotfix archive and replace the ones that already exist:

  • /hawk/bin/tibhawkhma.exe
  • /hawk/lib/agent.jar
  • /hawk/lib/console.jar

If you run 64bit Hawk, take /hawk/bin/tibhawkhma64.exe from archive and save it as /hawk/bin/tibhawkhma.exe

By the way, some other important things were fixed in the Hawk 4.8.1 Hotfix 3 and Hotfix 4, so please keep your Hawk agents updated.
