Syslog filling 13% a day

Recommended Posts

Hello, my Syslog has filled up.  I wasn't paying attention to the server for a few days.  I thought it was unmanic causing the fuss, but after twiddling with that, it didn't seem like that was the case.  How do I go about preventing this in the future?  My diagnostics are attached.


Thank you

the biggest culprit recently has been the Connect plugin doing excessive logging.    The latest update to the plugin fixes this, but you then need to reboot to get the log space reset.

It looks like the unraid API is most of the space
