Ubuntu :: HUGE Syslog And Daemon.log Files?

Jul 25, 2010

I have a 60GB partition with / and home on it. I logged on yesterday and it gave me a warning saying that I had only 1.9 GB of disk space left. I ignored it for a day and assumed that i had too many videos and pics.But the next day i had not added any files or downloaded any software but i had 0B left. I used the disk usage analyser and found that 33GBs came from /var/log. It was from two log files. syslog and daemon.log 16.5GB each!! I opened them up and i found that this line of text was repeated hnundreds of thousands of times.

Server :: Syslog-NG Macros - Make The Log Files ?

Mar 18, 2010

I am currently using Syslog-NG to make the log files in the format of: $R_YEAR$R_MONTH$R_DAY$R_HOUR and I need to be a little more granular.

I am wondering if there is a way to to divide the hour by 12, making a new log file every 5 minutes. We have been using LogRotate, but when Syslog-NG is restarted we have some data loss. Is this possible? Another solution I can think of would be to add $R_MINUTE (or whatever it is) and run a cron job every 5 minutes to concatenate the files.

General :: Syslog Allow Organizing Stored Simple Log Files

Sep 15, 2010

Syslog is used to store simple log files or we can manage them too? Well, the thing is, that I need to run a software (like syslog) to collect my logs and put them in order and organize them so it makes them "understandable". I have been told that syslog can do the job and that it doesn't need a complex configuration to work.

the lpr package already is installed in myserver, there is no problem to print directly.

General :: How To Use Tail -f With Sound

May 8, 2011

I am trying to use tail -f and play a sound everytime a new line appears. I tried this: for i in tail -f myFile; do aplay alert.wav; done; Which kinda worked, the output is:

Playing WAVE 'alert.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 22050 Hz, Mono
Playing WAVE 'alert.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 22050 Hz, Mono
Playing WAVE 'alert.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 22050 Hz, Mono

But after 3 times it stops, and I would like to print the tail -f result and not the aplay result. How could I achieve that?

Fedora :: Tail -f /var/log/messages Info

Jul 30, 2010

I was using Opensuse on Virtualbox earlier today. I issued the tail -f /var/log/messages command on Opensuse 11.3 to see the messages. Then I logged in from my Mac into Opensuse 11.3. I noticed that Opensuse was displaying realtime messages of the things happening. For eg, I entered a wrong su password and it displayed that too. But no such things were happening on my Fedora 13 installation. So is there any way if I could get some realtime messages on Fedora 13 too like the one on Opensuse..?

General :: Tail -f Not Tracking File Changes?

Jun 20, 2010

I was recently looking into using tail -f to monitor some text files like so: tail -f /var/sometext However, when I did some testing, it doesn't seem to work. What I did was I created a new file and ran: tail -f /home/name/text Then, I opened the log in vim and did some editing, saved it, and it seems that tail is not "seeing" the change.

The weird thing is, running echo "hello" >> /home/name/text seems to work fine (tail sees the change). I read somewhere this has something to do with file descriptors and new inodes being created when saving a file.

CentOS 5 :: RPM Tail Chasing Clobbered Yum Upgrade

Mar 28, 2011

I have had update problems for a very long time in my desktop e-machine. Maybe since 5.3. Usually something about Gwenview and other things. And, while --skip-broken got other packages updated, sorry, an incomplete update just isn't acceptable. Because of this I stopped using Centos for a long time. Yesterday, I got ambition and gave it another try. I had a lot of yum upgrade failures when upgrading 5.4 to 5.5, using --skip-broken.

I decided to fix things or delete Centos completely. But, I like the idea of free R****t. I realize this may have been posted, but I had no luck finding it via Google, So I started Googling. I soon found the --disablerepo option, and playing with repos, got most of the failures to upgrade. But, still hung up on a lot of stuff, like 11 packages or more.

Next, I learned about yum-prioroties and setting repo prorities. Yum-priorities was already installed, but I did go in and set the priorities. Since Google has a lot of information on this, I will not repeat here. You go into the repo config files and add a priority number to each repo listing. Here is a script to display repo priorities that I found online, sorry, I lost the author:

General :: Place A Shell Script With Tail -f In The Back Ground?

Oct 6, 2010

Following script name is 123.sh and I need to put this in the background if I do 123.sh -bg this will not bring me back to the prompt but echoes what ever I put (using echo hello >> /tmp/123) in to the /temp/123 file. the only way that I have found doing this is to do "nohup 123.sh &" to put this in to the background. Is this okay or is there any better way of doing this?

# file name is 123.sh
tail -f /temp/123 | while read line

Fedora Installation :: X11vnc : Tail: Cannot Watch /tmp/x11vnc.tray.*

Jun 18, 2011

By invoking x11vnc with the -gui tray option the TCL/TK GUI attempts to embed itself onto the system tray, but I encounter the error message "tail: cannot watch /tmp/x11vnc.tray.*", after the first settings dialog approved [clicked OK]. I believe that a package is still missing to be installed and this is not really a software bug. I use the XFCE version shipped along F15, and the GUI can be started but not as a docked-applet.

Ubuntu :: Direct Syslog Messages To Particular Tty?

Aug 24, 2009

I wrote a script which will run in ubuntu box and will display in tty1, without loading the gdm. The problem is when I plugged in a usb drive it will cause some messages to be printed into the current tty user logged in.

Like : [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through

This is really disturbing when a user is running the script. Is there anyway that I can direct all the messages to some other tty which I don't use.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Logging Cron To Syslog

Mar 2, 2011

There was an useful discussion on "how to stop logging cron to syslog". The useful answer is to update the line targeting syslog in /etc/syslog.conf to say something like:

*.*;auth,authpriv.none,mail.none,cron.none -/var/log/syslog
the significant part being that cron.none means that cron will not log to syslog.

There was discussion about whether this was a good thing to do, but omitted to suggest that adding/ uncommenting the following line would mean that no information would be lost but that syslog would be less cluttered as a source of monitoring info:

cron.* -/var/log/cron.log

You've still got all your cron-related log items available in cron.log if and when you need them. To make the new /etc/syslog.conf lines effective you should also, with root privileges:

touch /var/log/cron.log
chown syslog:adm /var/log/cron.log
and restart syslog. In my case:

/etc/init.d/sysklogd restart
