    Exclamation [SOLVED] Ubuntu 8.04, Zimbra 6.0.5 and the syslog

    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone else is seeing massive amounts of data being written to the syslog of their Ubuntu 8.04 server running Zimbra 6.0.5.

    I have two other clients running an older version of Zimbra 5.1.5 and we don't see that behavior with them.

    This happens on 32 and 64 bit platforms and I was wondering if there's a way to turn it off.

    The same data seems to appear in the zimbra-stats.log file as well.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Running 64 bit setup and not seeing that problem.

    Our logs are semi-large. What do you consider to be too big?

    (64 bit)

    Wow, yeah, they're not that big.

    My question was really more to the point of "is this expected behaviour". If it is, it is to bad because it really renders our syslog useless for troubleshooting anything.

    Here's an example of what's being placed into the syslog by zimbra:

    Ah yes,

    I think that is a bug and it seems I read a fix for that in another thread. I'll re-dig around and see if I can find it again.

    Ah! That would be awesome because, I'm at a loss here as to what should be done.

    Thanks!

    n4bbq, Thanks again!

    I just left a post on that other thread.

    I really appreciate it!
