the listener log can be changed from within lsnrctl by

lsnrctl> set log_file <new_name>

or - if you want to use the same name -

lsnrctl> set logging off
... rename listener.log on OS level
lsnrctl> set logging on

Works in any operating system, AFAIK. No need to stop the
listener for this.


I am not a Linux expert but on Windows some log, like listener.log, can not be changed without bringing down the application. I think you need to check this for the logs you want to handle.

I suggest that the first step will be: Do I need these logs at all????  :-)
