Dear Kris: Thank you for quickly reply.
>Add size: 100mb to your logrotate.conf >It will only logrotate after the size is greater than that size. Actually my logrotate.conf is just set as you mentioned. The problems is that the system logrotation works as a cron task so rotation of log file size will be made only when the task runs. I have already change the default value of cron interval from daily to hourly but the frequency is not enough. The log file size still grows to 160MB or even bigger. Maybe I should change the cron interval much smaller such as per minute. Or maybe there is better way?

Although log rotation of Operation system is working fine to make rotation every hour, it is not efficient. Has anyone got any idea to rotate log files by size (e.g. 100MB) ? It costs time to add a new log achieve server, therefore a temporary solution should be considered. Best regards From: Peng, Zhang FYI: My own solution(not a good one) is shared here: Referring to the document : http://docs.openstack.org/developer/oslo.log/configfiles/example_nova.html I have found a way using python logging modules. I added a configuration file as follows under /etc/nova/ directory: File name: logging.conf [DEFAULT] logfile =/var/log/nova/api.log [loggers] keys = root [handlers] keys = rotatingfile [formatters] keys = context [logger_root] level = DEBUG handlers = rotatingfile [handler_rotatingfile] class = handlers.RotatingFileHandler args = (%(logfile)s, 'a', 5024000, 5) formatter = context [formatter_context] class = nova.openstack.common.log.ContextFormatter And I also changed this parameter in nova.conf to make nova use the above configuration: log_config_append=/etc/nova/logging.conf Everything seems going well except that all nova services such as api, scheduler, etc. begin to put their log messages into the same file(api,log)! So I have to put a script to replace the file name defined in DEFAULT session: logfile = '%s.log' % (os.path.join('/var/log', *os.path.basename(__import__('inspect').stack()[-1]).split('-'))) It works but it’s also weird. _______________________________________________ OpenStack-operators mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-operators _______________________________________________ OpenStack-operators mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-operators
