LMS 2.5 syslog

Unanswered Question

Hi guys,

I have some problems with my syslog in LMS 2.5. I am running out of disk space because of syslog messages and also my server is slowing down gradually.

I've created a job to purge the syslog messages and it looks like it is not working. my syslog.log is 30GB. I wanted to purge it manually but i couldn't open the file to deleted some messages. (error message says another program is using the file)

what can i do pls?

Make sure you stop the following processes via a pdterm command first:



Also, on Windows make sure the common services syslog service is stopped

You may want to look into using logrot to rotate this log file. It comes included with LMS 2.5.x
