Description

Filesystem               Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb7                2.7G  2.2G  588M  79% /var/log
The current log retention delays are:
  • 7 days
    • /var/log/syslog 223 Mo
  • 14 days
    • /var/log/apache2 11 Mo
  • 4 weeks
    • /var/log/mail.* 1.5 Go
    • /var/log/auth.log* 58 Mo
    • /var/log/user.log* 248 Ko
    • /var/log/daemon.log* 23 Mo
    • /var/log/fail2ban 5 Mo
  • 7 months
    • /var/log/vmail_clamdscan.log* 28 Ko
  • 1 year
    • /var/log/roundcube/ 1.6 Mo
  • Not using logrotate:
    • /var/log/named 204Mo
Propositions:
  • either rotate /var/log/mail.log everyday or compress /var/log/mail.log.1 (it would use ~120 Mo instead of 800 Mo)
  • /var/log/apache2: increase log retention to 2 months
  • compress /var/log/syslog.log.1

History

#1 Updated by Marc Dequènes over 2 years ago

Ok to increase Apache logs. It's not very costly for this host and if it helps debugging, it's fine.

All '.1' files could be compressed, on all hosts in fact.

Bind log is custom, but the directory was in the package IIRC, so that's strange there's no rules. Anyway we should add them.

We should probably investigate what we can do we journald, because it would maybe be easier to handle per-service retention.
