Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 531030
log file sized increased by "compression"
Last modified: 2009-10-30 12:37:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Many log files libvirt creates in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/ have no content. Still libvirt (or its helpers) "compress" them. The result are nonzero-sized files. Just don't do this, test for empty files first. This will also prevent triggering other bugs (less, for instance, currently has problems showing such files).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run domain without any action for a few days
compress empty files
leave empty files alone
FYI this is already fixed upstream:
Switching to POST as per Cole's comment.
Worth fixing for Fedora 12, but probably not worth the effort for Fedora 11.
