I was looking the anality graph Usage in Wowza Streaming Engine and I noticed 79% of hard disk use. Doing a quick search I discovered that logs folder uses 70 % of space. So i would like know if there one way to clear "wowzastreamingengine_acess.log" and "wowzastreamingengine_error.log" after of a time. I see that threads
Log files exceed disk space,
Can i disable log files? but i did'nt want to disable only remove from time to time. Is it possible?
Certainly on a linux server, the Total Memory bar in the graph also includes memory that is being used for OS level caching and network buffers. This memory is released automatically by the OS when required so can be considered as free memory however, Wowza has no way of separating the actual free memory from the cached memory so will always report higher than actual values for Total Memory.
If the stream has been added to [Wowza-Install]/conf/StartupStreams.xml it will attempt to connect to the source to receive the stream when Wowza starts and retry constantly, if unavailable this will create lots of logging.
I recommend checking the StartupStreams.xml file and removing the entries which are not needed.
In Wowza Streaming Engine 4, the MediaCaster streams are now restarted by default if Wowza thinks they are unhealthy.
To disable this edit the StreamValidator from true to false in the [Wowza-Install]/conf/live/Application.xml file.
