RFE: journalctl commands to trim on-disk journal by date and size
Last modified: 2015-01-28 23:48:43 EST
Occasionally, things go wrong on a system, and it's nice to be able to trim log information outside of the regular rotation policy. It would be useful if there were a journalctl command to force-discard persistent logs from before a certain time or down to a certain size.
As I understand it, the current often-suggested procedure is to remove log files manually. A journalctl command would be more elegant and less error-prone.
This has been implemented in systemd git now.
Nice -- thanks!
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
