Severity: 3-Major


/var/log fills up and eventually runs out of disk space. Old log files are not being deleted from the rotation, and they are locked and unable to be removed.


/var/log consumes an unusually high amount of disk space, and logrotate does not work correctly.


This occurs when eam is configured. eam provides external access management for 3rd party identity integration such as Oracle Access Manager (OAM) SSO.
