Syslog_info file management

Does anyone have a a reliable method to truncate this file regularly in place and still have it work ? My files are a bit on the large size (about 1GB a month) and without truncation the log file notification to RME just dies.

Re: Syslog_info file management

NMSROOT/bin/logrot.pl is designed to do exactly this. See the online documentation on how to configure it, but essentially you run NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/logrot.pl -c and follow the menu prompts.

If you need to truncate a file in an emergency, just run NMSROOT/bin/logrot_trunc on it.
