Description Matt Reid 2016-02-11 16:17:28 EST
Description of problem:
User tried to view /var/log/messages in the log viewer, and was always simply told that data would appear soon. Checking the local /var/log/messages file, there was output in it, but that apparently wasn't making it over to the deployment's folder of logs, as /var/log/messages there was 0 bytes, so nothing ever was displayed in the web UI for that log. Others were working fine.
