    without knowing some particulars, a variation on

    find . -new 'keeper file name' -print | rm

    would work. (Substitute a real file name where obvious).

    other variations would use -mtime, -ctime or -atime parameters of find.

    Try this on UNIX

    find . -name *trc -atime +7 -exec rm {} \;

    if on NT get there are some nt ports available of the common unix commands

    If your installation follows OFA, the following command will trim logs that have not been accessed withing the past 7 days...

    *** replace ? with your database name (i.e ORCL) ***


    find $ORACLE_HOME/admin/?/bdump -name "*.trc" -atime +7 -exec rm {} \;
