Default Log file deleting itself - Is this normal?

HI,
Iím using Merlin 3.0.0.4.270.24 for the RT-N66U and am wondering if the log files in the System Log > General Log section automatically deletes itself every so often? If so, is there a setting to control this? This has happened to me at least once that I know of. Thank you!

Hi Sean,

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:
Code:
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
Joe

Hi Joe,
Thank you for your response. So glad to hear that the log the log file was just cleaning up after itself and it wasnít someone hacking into my router and then trying to cover their tracks. I do have a lot of messages in the syslog file because Iíve set Firewall > General > Logged Packet Types to ďBothĒ.
Thanks again, Sean
