Hi all!

Since a while I have been using OR on different Raspberry (version B or B+, different wheezy version up to 3.18). While it is usually running smoothly, after 1 or 2 months, OR doe not react to all commands anymore and I have realized that removing the log files solves the issue for another month or so.

Does anyone has the same issue?
If this is the case, is there a way to disable the writing of log files or should I create a cron task to remove these files time to time?

Any feedback is more than welcome!
Kind Regards!


i have a cron job to remove logs and restart every night. This is probably overkill, but i used to suffer from it locking up a lot, and decided i would like it to restart at midnight fresh with no log build up.

The Cron looks like this
15 0 * * * /opt/openremote/scripts/dr

and the script is as follows (remember to chmod +x to set it as executable).

rm /opt/openremote/logs/boot.log

rm /opt/openremote/logs/dev/*

/sbin/shutdown -r now

If things are going well, you can also consider to reduce or shut-off logging in file
Reducing the number of writes is also better for the SD card in the Raspberry

Thanks both for your input.
PZ1, where is the file ""? I could not find it!

easy to find with a directory search.

Shut-off logging tasks by editing the file works like a charm.
And indeed, will for sure increase the lifetime of the SD card at the same time.

All the best!
