Hi Dan, The Oracle alert log (Alert_WAT11.log) is a file that Oracle uses to log important database information. The file continually grows larger, and if it becomes too large, it can adversely affect system performance. Archive the alert log on a regular basis so that it does not become so large as to cause problems. To archive the alert log, move it from program-drive:\Empower\Oracle\diag\rdbms\WAT11\WAT11\Trace to your storage location.
Tip: Once you move the alert log, a new one is recreated automatically.
