How do I purge the SNMP Debug log on a Probe?



How can I delete or purge the snmp debug log from a probe located in C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Logs (Debug)

We have a probe which has a 55GB SNMP debug log and I cannot work out how to remove this without turning off the probe and deleting the file, but that would only be a temporary fix and I would prefer to prevent the same issue from arising in the future.

We had SNMP Debuging turned on in the probes settings and this is now off but the log is still growing.

Looks like after disabling SNMP debugging the probe needed to be restarted for the changes to take effect.

To fix the problem I stopped the Probe Service Deleted the log Started the Probe It then restarted itself again to apply new settings and now its not creating the SNMP Log
