We're running LMS 2.6 (CS 3.0.5, RME 4.0.5, CM 4.0.6) on Windows and our syslog.log is now around 98GB. The disk has about 10GB free remaining. I attempted to run logrot.pl set to 0 archives, hoping it would blow away the huge file and create a smaller one for us. Instead, I got this error message: "WARNING: Failed to get a successful value back from D:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\bin\logrot_stat.exe, using Perl stat instead (note: this will fail for files > 4GB)". I've heard erasing the syslog.log file causes more problems; what can I do to eliminate this monster and start afresh with a new syslog.log?
Okay, I think I see the bug, but I cannot compile a fix for you at the moment. Just run logrot_trunc as I described earlier, and that should clear out your logfile.
From there on out, I recommend scheduling regular logrots to keep the file size under control.
