Hello fellow AIX user,

How can I limit the a log file in syslog.conf.. I inserted this
syslog.conf

*.info /var/log/messages
I want it to stop logging at like 512k

Thanks

What level of AIX are you using ... rotating and limiting of logs came
in for 5.1 IIRC .. check out /etc/syslog.conf as its all detailled in
there.

If not, then check out logrotate
