Thread: NetworkManager Logs Eating storage

    Default NetworkManager Logs Eating storage

    Anyone know why NetworkManager logs in /var/log/ would be eating 12gb of space? 4 files with different dates add up to 12gb. It just a laptop with a 3945abg card and occasional use of the wired card.

    I dont see anywhere in yast or knetworkmanager where its logging. the funny thing is that there were 2 files. something like NetworkManager062208 and NetworkManager062208.tar.bz. The raw file was 7+gb and the compressed was about 1mb. Its like it tried to compress it but didnt delete the original.

    It may be useful, in this forum, to mention you have no drive space
    left. The reason you have two files is that the system tried to
    compress the original but, since it lacks space, failed. If things are
    working properly (aside from the disk space issue) just overwrite the
    file with a bunch of nothing as mentioned in the other forum and then
    let's work on figuring out why you are logging so much data in here:

    echo '' > /var/log/NetworkManager #run as 'root'

    Be sure you put permissions back properly on the file in case they
    change (they shouldn't).

    Good luck.
