14.6. Changing the Configuration on the Fly

Once the database has started, you can still start or reconfigure the logging without having to stop and restart the database. By calling the system procedure @UpdateLogging you can pass the configuration XML to the servers as a text string. For any appenders defined in the new updated configuration, the existing appender is removed and the new configuration applied. Other existing appenders (those not mentioned in the updated configuration XML) remain unchanged.
