Docker out of space - How to fix 11+ GB Plex log file?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have been running Unraid for several months now without issue w/ numerous Docker containers. Today I noticed nextcloud was not working and tried to update it and got an error "no space left on device". This seemed curious to me. Then, I looked at the container sizes and can see Plex has a 11.1 GB log file. Yikes! I assume this is what is eating the space on my docker image.


I've searched around a bit for a solution but I'm stumped on how to clear this log and re-gain this space back. And of course, how to prevent such a huge log file in the first place.


Thanks for your suggestions!

And your Plex container logs aren't being flooded with errors or anything? Not the Plex Server logs - the Plex container log itself (Click on Plex docker -> Logs)


That's where I'd start. Jackett and GluTunVPN look suspiciously large too.
