Last Modified: Sep 13, 2022

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
F5OS Velos(all modules)

Fixed In:
1.5.0

Opened: May 31, 2022
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

If the parameters (frequency/size) for log file rotation are updated in a new software release, they are not updated on the target system during upgrade. The result is that the size of retained log messages depends on the upgrade history, not on the software version.

Impact

When logfiles are collected by qkview, differing amounts of data may be gathered, perhaps omitting information that was intended to be collected.

Conditions

System that is live upgraded from any version to any other version prior to F5OS-C 1.5.0.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The system updates the logrotate parameters during software install, so that the setting correspond to the software version, not the upgrade history.
