http-web-access.log file is in the $ORACLE_HOME/oc4j/j2ee/OC4J_DBConsole_<host>_<sid>/log directory. This log file grows in the long run and can be managed from  $ORACLE_HOME/oc4j/j2ee/OC4J_DBConsole_<host>_<sid>/config/http-web-site.xml file.


<?xml version = '1.0' standalone = 'yes'?>
<!DOCTYPE web-site PUBLIC "OracleAS XML Web-site" "http://xmlns.oracle.com/ias/dtds/web-site-9_04.dtd">

        <web-app application="default" name="dms" root="/dmsoc4j"/>
        <web-app application="em" name="em" load-on-startup="true" root="/em"/>


        <!-- Access Log, where requests are logged to -->
        <access-log path="../log/http-web-access.log"/>
        <!-- Uncomment this if you want to use ODL logging capabilities
        <odl-access-log path="../log/http-web-access" max-file-size="1000" max-directory-size="10000"/>
