Delivery Log very huge
Question asked by TSSB Sdn Bhd - May 31, 2016 at 9:41 PM
Unanswered
Hi,
 
I having problem recently with my mail server HDD space always full.
Later found out the log is occupied all the space especially Delivery Log.
One day delivery log file can reach up to 70GB. The Log Detail Level are set to "Detail"
 
Can anyone tell me is this a bug or it is normal when we set the Log Detail Level = Detail ?
 
How can I fix this?
 
Currently I changed the Log Detail Level = Normal and the daily log file in average 100KB
 
Regards,
Kok Wai

Kok Wai,
 
70GB is indeed unusually large. Our detailed Delivery Logs are @ 60-90MB for @ 60,000 emails/day (and about 3-4MB compressed). Unless your SmarterMail is delivering @ 46 million emails/day then there is something definitely amiss with that file size.
 
I believe that version 11 of SmarterMail allows you to set SETTINGS > LOG SETTINGS > COMPRESS LOG FILES AFTER XX DAYS. (Can't remember exactly which version this feature was added.) We routinely set this to 3 days, resulting in even our detailed IMAP Logs which exceed 2GB in size to be compressed to a much more reasonable 60-70MB.

Hi Scarab,
 
Thank you for your input.
 
I don't see the SETTINGS > LOG SETTINGS > COMPRESS LOG FILES AFTER XX DAYS in my server.
 
I have check the Smartertool Update and my server is already running on the latest version which is Version 11.7.5318
