Bug Filed on 03-01-2016: myDevices logs filling SD card

Continuing the discussion from Bug Filed on 12-07-2015: Issue with myDevices Logs:

I’m having a similar issue with huge “myDevices” logs filling the SD card on my RaspberryPi. See screenshot.

I’m also wondering if “/var/log/SystemInformation.log” belongs to Cayenne? That file alone is taking over 1.7GB of the SD card.

edit /etc/myDevices/crontab.sh

rm /var/log/myDevices*
rm /var/log/daemon*
rm /var/log/SystemInformation*
rm /var/log/syslog*
rm /var/log/auth.log*

This way each log is deleted every minute by the myDevices cron job.

Thanks for letting us know. We are working on a solution for creating, storing, and purging logs so that this does not happen. In the meantime you can use the temporary solution that tdeleanu posted.
