My syslog.log file size is getting too large (about 9GB) within a month. Is there a way for me to run any job for me to archive syslog.log and compress it in a smaller file size?
Thanks and Regards,
Your Collector.properties is till pointing to NMSROOT\log\syslog.log. If your active syslog message file is a different file, you need to update the SYSLOG_FILES property in Collector.properties, then restart SyslogCollector and SyslogAnalyzer.
Yes, you can configure logrot.pl to periodically rotate and archive the syslog.log file. Search the Common Services online help for "logrot" for more on how to configure and schedule it.
