disk space is cheap → this becomes an infuriating answer. Is cheap where ? For who ? Whatever price it is, one might want to use it for something else than log ( on a desktop pc ).
Here https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+question/691873 is another example of what may happen. Less than 4GB but above 10% of remaining space. This led to system complaining about storage. Shouldn't this « journal » be set by default to free space automatically on desktop computer ? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to systemd in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1790205 Title: systemd journals take up a lot of space, and it's not obvious how much is used, and what the upper limit is. Status in systemd: New Status in systemd package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: After running Bionic for 3 months, I had 2.6 GB of journals. I would not expect from a normal desktop user that they should have to run commands like `sudo journalctl --vacuum-time=10d`. I would nominate this command as a sane default to have running at each reboot to ensure that logs do not exceed 500 MB: sudo journalctl --vacuum-size=500M Supposedly, a server should by default retain more logs, so perhaps this should be implemented through a configuration package "systemd- configuration-desktop" as a dependency of the ubuntu-desktop meta package? ..... as it turns out, it's hard to see how much disk space is used, and what the upper limit is, even when it is set and respected by default.
