I am having a bit of trouble understanding creation and deletion of
Creation is max number of logs = 10, fie size 100 MB, and create a new log
every day. This is the default I believe as I haven’t changed it. My
question is does one of these parameters over ride the other? For example
we want to keep 24 weeks of logs, and for example create a log everyday.
And logs are quite small for us, so would the 100 mb parameter take
precedence or the one day setting? ****
Same with deletion… would like the when drive has less then 5 mb and
delete files over 24 weeks old but don’t care about the 500 mb total size.
I see some fields can be set with -1 to inactivate them but some can’t…***
If anyone can explain this a little clearer I am sure its just something I
Of course per day time will take preference over the size limit of 100 MB &
From what I understood you want to have log files for 24 weeks (168
One log file per day.
nsslapd-accesslog-maxlogsize: 1 <-- We have set 1 so that it will ignore
the size of file and rotate only after a day regardless of the size of a
nsslapd-accesslog-logrotationtime: 1 <-- Since we want to rotate daily
Same will be with errorlogs & audit logs.
Regarding Logs delete. (whichever come first)
nsslapd-accesslog-logmaxdiskspace: 500 <--- Maximum disk space taken by
access logs, If exceeds Oldest file will be deleted
nsslapd-accesslog-logminfreediskspace: 5 <--------- minimum free disk in
MB, If goes below this Oldest file will be deleted
