Yes, it's normal that the Syslog is renewed (deleted) automatically.
How often, or better when(!) it's renewed is defined by the start parameters. Which you can see by looking for the syslogd process:
chief@RT-N66U:/tmp/home/root# ps -w | grep syslog
352 admin 1336 S syslogd -m 0 -S -O /tmp/syslog.log -s 512 -l 7
The -s 512
parameter defines the 'Max size (KB) before rotation'. In this case after reaching 512 KB of size the syslog.log will start fresh.
Do you have so many messages in the syslog that this happens often in your case?
With kind regards
