/var/log Size Question

Hi There, 


I have had the log fill up on both of my unraid servers and I wanted to clarify something please.


I have this entry in GO


# Enlarge the LOG partition (because Dynamix System Stats needs at least 186Mb, default LOG is 128Mb)
mount -o remount,size=768m /var/log


When I type mount in the terminal (Loving the terminal option in the Web Gui BTW)


I get this:


tmpfs on /var/log type tmpfs (rw,size=128m,mode=0755,size=768m)


That does not look right to me?  shouldn't there just be one size defined in what is returned?


I intend to figure out why the logs are filling up, but I want to ensure I give it some extra headroom in the process.


Many Thanks
