Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-9746) system-vm: logrotate config causes critical failures
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:52:26 GMT
Joakim Sernbrant created CLOUDSTACK-9746:

             Summary: system-vm: logrotate config causes critical failures
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-9746
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: SystemVM
    Affects Versions: 4.9.0, 4.8.0
            Reporter: Joakim Sernbrant
            Priority: Critical

CLOUDSTACK-6885 changed logrotate from time based to size based. This means that logs will
grow up to its size times two (due to delaycompress).

For example:

50M auth.log
50M auth.log.1
10M cloud.log
10M cloud.log.1
50M cron.log
50M cron.log.1
50M messages
50M messages.1

Some files will grow slowly but eventually they will get to their max size. The total allowed
log size with the current config is well beyond the size of the log partition.

Having a full /dev/log puts the VR in a state where operations on it critically fails.
