[PCA 2.x] Log Rotation is not Working Properly, Size of System Log Files Keep Increasing (Doc ID 2646856.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2024

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.1.1 to 2.4.3 [Release 2.0]
Private Cloud Appliance X8-2 - Version All Versions and later
Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.0.3 to 2.0.3 [Release 2.0]
Linux x86-64


Although /var/log/messages* is daily rotated, but the size keeps increasing(never reduced). 

The issue could be observed in all Management Nodes and Compute Nodes with fm-2.3 or fm-2.4 package installed.

In PCA 2.4.4.x versions, the fm package is not installed, so won't be impacted by this issue.
