Rollover Size (MB)
Optional. Target file size, in megabytes (MB), at which to trigger rollover. A value of zero (0) means that the target service does not roll the file over based on size. Default is 10.
Rollover Time (Hrs)
Optional. Length of time, in hours, to keep a target file active. After the time period has elapsed, the target service rolls the file over. A value of zero (0) means that the target service does not roll the file over based on time. Default is 0.
Buffer Size (KB)
The size of the data that the target service flushes to the file system.
Receive Idle Events
Indicate whether the target service should flush the data to the file system if the size of the data is less than the buffer size.
Time Out (Seconds)
Time in seconds after which the target service flushes the data to the file system.
Rollover File Directory
Full path to the directory that contains the rollover files.
Retry on Failure
Indicates that the target service should try to write to the target if the operation fails the first time.
Number of Retries
The number of times the target service should retry to write to the source.
Delay between Retries
Time in milliseconds between successive retries.
Statistics
You can choose to monitor the following statistics for the File target service:
  • Bytes Received. The number of bytes the target service receives.
  • Events Received. The number of events the target service receives.
  • Receive Rate (Per Sec). The number of bytes the target service receives every second.
