With the update to Wowza Streaming Engine suddenly logs have started being created on our server without our knowledge which ended up capping our storage space and creating issues until pinpointed. The error logs generated are anywhere from 3gb-20gb in size per log per day. They are too big to open in any word editor and I have tried to use Sawmill but it doesn't seem to be able to open a file of such magnitude. Is there any way to open these files or have Wowza make them smaller? What reasons would the files be so large? Is there a way to minimize logs so it doesn't log non-important information?
If you have not changed that file it will not be DEBUG level. The default is INFO. The file is [install-dir]/conf/log4j.properties
My guess is you have bind errors in startup, or something else generating large amount of logging. You will want to look at your new logs after deleting these and after re-start to see what is going on.
