Description Michael Tokarev 2000-05-21 08:30:24 EDT
When in.ftpd started with -l option (log logins to syslog;
the default in inetd.conf), it will write something like this:

May 20 20:57:16 gate ftpd: orange.tls.msk.ru: connected: IDLE \
 <TONS OF SPACE CHARACTERS HERE> \
 [6054]: failed login from orange.tls.msk.ru [192.168.1.2]
May 20 20:57:16 gate ftpd: orange.tls.msk.ru: connected: QUIT \
 <TONS OF SPACE CHARACTERS HERE> \
 [6054]: FTP session closed

(lines split with \, TONS mean about 1K ones)

With this, /var/log/messages fills up VERY quickly, and will
be unreadable.

wu-ftpd-2.6.0-9
