Description Daniel Berrange 2006-11-17 17:15:36 EST
Description of problem:
XenD creates a number of log files under /var/log/xen. Only the xend.log file is
ever rotated - it uses python's builtin logging infrastructure to rotate. The
other files xend-debug.log and qemu-dm*.log are never rotated. The qemu-dm-*.log
are creted based on the PID of the QEMU process, so an ever increasing number of
log files accumulate over time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Work with Xen on a machine for 6 months
Actual results:
Huge & large numbers of log files under /var/log/xen

Expected results:
A small number of logs of limited size 

Additional info:
Attaching a logrotate config file from OpenSuse Xen RP mthat would be a good
starting point for a fix.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2007-03-30 09:52:51 EDT
Cloned for Fedora as bug #234594

This is definitely worth doing in rawhide, but probably not critical enough for
RHEL5 unless we start getting requests for it. Closing the RHEL5 bug as WONTFIX.
