Last Modified: Mar 24, 2020

Bug Tracker

Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Platform(all modules)

Opened: Oct 16, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Syslog is adding boot-marker logline not only to the most recent files but to the older files as well.

Impact

This can cause confusion if the log files are being used for troubleshooting.

Conditions

General use of BIG-IQ system for some period of time will result in log file rotation. Reboot the system after the rotation and the log files will get the boot-marker line added.

Workaround

The log file configuration can be modified to zip the file once log rotation occurs. If this is done, the bootlogmarker.sysinit will ignore the files and will not add the boot-marker line. For example altering the '.log' format of the log files in /etc/restjavad.log.conf can fix the issue.
