    How do you disable or lower debugging information for ntpd?


    ntpd is continuously filling up my /var/log/messages. Is there a way to reduce the output or disable ntpd logging altogether? It makes it difficult looking back on issues when the logs are so full of ntpd system calls. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can change the logfile with the "-l logfile" option to ntpd.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Thanks. I will try that. Unfortunately, the constant filling of the messages has stopped so I can't fully see the results. I am uncertain if doing this method will allow the logs to rotate so they don't fill up the partition if left unchecked.

    Read the man pages for logrotate, and logrotate.conf.
