[SOLVED] /var/log is getting full and it looks like Docker is causing it

Recommended Posts

Fix Common Problems sent me here as it is reporting that /var/log is getting full. I've attached my diagnostics zip and have also runthe command du -sm /var/log/* which gave this output:


0       /var/log/btmp
0       /var/log/cron
0       /var/log/debug
1       /var/log/dmesg
1       /var/log/docker.log
95      /var/log/docker.log.1
1       /var/log/faillog
1       /var/log/lastlog
0       /var/log/libvirt
1       /var/log/maillog
0       /var/log/messages
0       /var/log/nfsd
1       /var/log/nginx
0       /var/log/packages

0       /var/log/plugins
0       /var/log/removed_packages
0       /var/log/removed_scripts
1       /var/log/samba
0       /var/log/scripts
0       /var/log/secure
0       /var/log/setup
0       /var/log/spooler
0       /var/log/swtpm
1       /var/log/syslog
5       /var/log/syslog.1
1       /var/log/wtmp


Any idea what could be causing the issue or how I can figure out which Docker image is filling the log?

I think I've managed to answer my own question. The log for "Home Assistant-Core" is massive and full of errors caused by my AV receiver, so I've deleted that from HA and rebooted my server. Will see if it fixes the problem.
