Oracle listener service update

Analyzing the log listener, by default “listener.log” in may see messages such as:

These messages only thing indicate that the service of DB, has updated the record. Automatic registration of services in the listener, something that was introduced long time ago, Oracle 8i.

If we set the listener name as LISTENER and listening on port 1521, any DB to be created on that machine will be registered in the LISTENER and dynamically updated every 10 minutes.

No need to pay more attention, it is true that the log grows and does not seem too fancy, but there is no way to change this behavior and unless the automatic recording of instances where the listener is unconfigure.
