20GB tomahawk log file? - lokimon - 01-23-2015

Hi there, I seem to be the only one posting to the OSX forum, but I see people viewed my last topic so maybe someone can help with this.

I got a message that my OS drive was running out of space (not surprising, it's a 120GB SSD and try as I might, stuff i don't want always ends up getting put there. So I went spelunking and found 20GB of logs for tomahawk. that seems sort of crazy, is there any way to adjust the log level or otherwise stop this from happening? I can't see many reasons I would want all those logs.

BTW I would have searched the forum but I actually can't find a search function. Maybe it's right in front of me and I don't see it.

Well, since I posted and cleared it, it has grown to over 3GB. it's just full of constant scans, so I set the scan frequency to 1200 seconds (up from 60) which thanks to the UI is sort of a pain (you have to use the up/down arrows to adjust it and i couldn't just type a number into the box, 1140 clicks later I had it set.)

If it's still a problem, I think I will have to set up some sort of logrotate like this: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man8/newsyslog.8.html

I'm just fixing this for the upcoming 0.8.3 release, so incremental scans won't spam the logfile any longer. Thanks for the report!

It'll be shrunk on every startup. Can you confirm that?
