/var/log always filling up

Recommended Posts

My /var/log fills to 100% quickly after cleaning. I am running Ubuntu 18.10 with Nextcloud snap on a Cubox-i4.

 

Others have mitigated the problem by changing the logging strategy, but I rather not mess with this.

Any ideas?

But you have upgraded to Ubuntu 18.10 ? Which we don't support.

You will need to adjust ram logging according to your use case (Nextcloud) or disable it if you don't know how to deal with.

/var/log started filling up only a few weeks ago, on 18.04. I upgraded in the hope the issue would go away - it did not.

armbianmonitor:  http://ix.io/1scU     showed "no space left on device"

 

I have since

  1. disabled log in /etc/default/armbian-ramlog, rebooted
  2. enabled ramlog, rebooted
  3. increased ramlog to 100M

armbianmonitor:  http://ix.io/1scY     no more space issues shown

 

It could be that my issue is fixed. Thank You.
