Android Studio logcat history/buffer size

You can also do it per project, via the IDE:
Settings->Editor->General->Console: tick “Override console cycle buffer size. Enter your desired size in the text box.

Finally restart Android Studio for the changes to take effect.

enter image description here

You can increase the value of idea.cycle.buffer.size=1024 in property file android-studiobinidea.properties, buffer size unit: (Kb). I have already try, and it works for me perfect!

Configuration description as following :

#---------------------------------------------------------------------
# This option controls console cyclic buffer: keeps the console output size not higher than the specified buffer size (Kb).
# Older lines are deleted. In order to disable cycle buffer use idea.cycle.buffer.size=disabled
#---------------------------------------------------------------------
idea.cycle.buffer.size=1024

I’m afraid currently it is not possible to change logcat buffer size. However, I’ve created feature request in AOSP issue tracker. Here’s the link: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=73425
