    acpid logs


    Hello,

    Having issue with /var/log/acpid log filling up. Is it possible to explain this log values.

    I understand it is checking Processor status.
    Not sure what the numbers imply.

    Also is there a way to reduce the frequency of messages generated as the /var folder get filled up very fast when acpid service is running.

    Found the log having following

    Hi,

    1. What is your distro and version?

    2. Have you run system updates?

    3. Per Alan Cox in this bug report, do you have bluetooth enabled?

    You should be able to control the size of logs and the length they are kept, etc. using the logrotate facility. Look in the directory /etc/logrotate.d/ for starters. There should be some files in there already to get you going.

    Hello,

    We are running RHEL 5.5 and no updates were made recently.
    Infact there are 4 other servers which have the same configuration and only one of these has this issue.

    One thing I saw on the other servers was an entry in the logs "notifying client 13479[68:68]". This is missing in the servers with issue.

    Per this Red Hat devel list thread, is acpid running in debug mode?

    Check this file:
    Code:
    /etc/sysconfig/acpid
    or just look in ps for acpid's run-time arguments.
