Re: Blank Log files

I'm using an older distro of DIAL AllStar manual install from a Debian 8 virtual machine, ( I need older app_rpt.c patched for IRLP )

If you look in /etc/fstab you should see an entry like the following (similar) set the size= option to what I have it or what you think...  Don't get too crazy because this uses memory and not disk..

Ok thank you. Yeah I will get a rotating log system and get the old garbage out of there.

What commands do I use to increase the file size?

Skyler - time to get logrotate running on that system to age out old things from the tmpfs where /var/log is mounted.  I'd also look at increasing that to 100M maybe as long as you have enough memory for it.

Heres something else that is interesting, I am also running an instance of MMDVM_bridge for something else ( not related to the P25 ), and it's log files have been blank for a couple of months. 

I have similar log settings for this

First, I would like to put a great thanks to Steve and everyone on this group for there efforts helping everyone out. 

I recently installed P25Reflector and I wen't to check my log directory, and I have blank files generated every day with the proper date but with no data in them. 

Below is my config for the P25Reflector.ini



[Id Lookup]




# Logging levels, 0=No logging









Under /var/log/mmdvm, the log files have been generated, but no data exists, even though I have users connected.
