Log problem

I recently developed a log problem on one my unRAID servers, as you can see from the attached image. I figure rebooting the server might fix it, but is there a command I can run to stop the log daemon and restart it, effectively fixing this?

It will


To restart and cleanup


/etc/rc.d/rc.rsyslogd stop
rm /var/log/syslog*
/etc/rc.d/rc.rsyslogd start

Do you know what the problem is/was?  If not, probably best to post diagnostics before you do the above

I believe it was when I was moving everything off my cache drive, it seems for some reason, that triggered an old docker I had for a security cam and it kept trying to establish an FTP connection to my server, thus, filling up the logs.
