Listener log file is empty and logging not happening

If listener log file is empty and no logging records are being logged in the log file, this probably means that someone truncate listener log file on the fly without following proper process. In Windows OS, you can not modify or truncate a file (listener log file in this case) that is in use by another proceess, however, Linux based OS would let you do this. After that, logging would no longer continue. Here I have explained the proper way of rotating listener log file. These instructions can be used for listener log file rotation as well as solving the issue of empty listener log file discussed here.
