EVL4 DSC Debug in Syslog

Postby f11 » Mon Jul 29, 2019 1:21 am

Is there a way to either fine tune the debug entries in my syslog files, or disable debug logging while leaving the general event logging enabled?

Not that I never ever want to see debug info, but if all I ever get is as follows, when the EnvisaLink is running ok:

Code: Select all

xxx@deb-box:/var/log$ sudo cat evl4debug.log
[sudo] password for xxx:

then Its not serving much of a purpose other than filling a rotated file over and over (username and MAC of EVL4 obscured by me). Fortunately, the rotation function gzips older files down to pretty small sizes, but still ...

Or have I missed something? I've searched for, and found, precious little info on the syslog client and what it sends to the server. But maybe I just haven't found the right reference? If there's documentation on configuring the syslog client function (aside from the general 1-pager on how to enable logging to a server), just point me at it and I'll take it from there.

Thanks for any nudges.

Submit a tech support request from your Eyezon portal. I've never seen anything like that before and we use the syslog client all the time for testing.

Thanks for pointing that out. It looks like it is a left-over from build testing that should have not have made it into the release. There shouldn't be any debug syslog entries in a normal release.

I've submitted a support request via the Portal, under "Alerts and Messages" and mentioned that I posted the issue here in the forums. Hope that's sufficient - if not, let me know what you need me to provide.

I kinda wondered why this debug "info" just gets output and repeated over and over, it made no sense. Now you've confirmed it wasn't meant to be part of a debug output log. And that means I can get rid of gz'd debug files (my linux box thanks you !)
