    Default Rsyslog & var/log/messages full of logs

    Hi to all this is my first post in Zimbra Forum !!!

    I am using latest 7.1.3 zimbra 64bit in centos 6. By default Centos use rsyslogd for configure log activity to the system.
    I notice that /var/log/messages is full logs which is the same with /var/log/zimbra-stats.log

    i just disable this logs to var/log/messages by change the setting to /etc/rsyslog.conf
    Code:
    *.info;authpriv.none;cron.none;local1.none                /var/log/messages
    I want to ask the community is it safe ?? have you seen something similar ??

    Default

    i have made the change bellow to my rsyslogd.conf file

    Code:
    *.info;authpriv.none;cron.none;local1.none;mail.none;local0.none;auth.none;               /var/log/messages
    It seems to work..

    Moreover you will find that postfix logs activity in two files :
    /var/log/maillog & /var/log/zimbra.log
    its up to you which one you are going to use.

    My setup :
    Centos 6.1
    Release 7.1.3_GA_3346.RHEL6_64_20110928134428 CentOS6_64 FOSS edition

    Default Zimbra stats logs twice

    comment this line is not what i want to do , that means
    your serer will not log kernel info messages at all !!!
    as a work around i did this

    Code:
    kern.info;authpriv.none;cron.none;local1.none;mail.none;local0.none;auth.none;
    that seams fine now , as for duplicate maillog and zimbra.log this i dont mind
    i just dont want all this garbage in the server messages log .
    thanks for the reply
