Dashing: Huge Log-File


I’m using Dashing v3 as a dashboard for our monitoring system.
I just found that the monitoring machine is slowly filling up. The reason: the log file thin.log inside the dashing folder.

/usr/share/dashing-icinga2/log# ll -h
total 5,1G
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4,0K Jan  7  2019 ./
drwxr-xrwx 16 root root 4,0K Okt 25 15:44 ../
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 5,1G Dez  2 10:02 thin.log

As you can see it has grown to 5GB.

Output of the last 100 lines looks normal, I guess?! At least I don’t see errors.
So does the log just build up over time and you have to delete it periodically.

There’s a logrotate script in tools\logrotate which you can adopt and use. I haven’t been using it myself, it was contributed by the community.
