Syslog Log File Size

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to manage the problem with burgeoning log file size with Kiwi Syslog, without further restricting the traffic that I log.

I run into half a gig every week.

Regards

Re: Syslog Log File Size

Honestly, that is the cost of doing business. If you want to analyze the data, you need to have the data. If you need to only archive for legal purposes, they you should be able to script a solution that zips it up - repetitive text content like syslog logs achieve very high compression. But since 200GB IDE hard drives are only a couple hundred bucks, this really shouldn't be a problem.
