Reducing server load by not logging every minute ?
I'm have a old system with Zimbra running on it. As I'm the only user I chose to try it on a server that is a step below the minimum system specs.
The system is a PII 350 Mhz with 512 MB Ram.
For 1 user I find that good enough (Hey, I'm the only user).
I found that the logger is executing every minute.
The crontab says:
# Status logging
* * * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmstatuslog
*/10 * * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmdisklog
Now I would like to increase the interval of the zmstatuslog to something like 5 or 10 minutes.
i.e. */10 * * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmstatuslog
Can I do that relatively safely ? Do I make that change in the crontab or in a different location.
