My /usr partition is at 93% on the 9th day of the month. Obviously this is not good.

I need some advice on what I should do. Any suggestion will be greatly appriciated.

I was wondering if it was possible to delete past months logs and just keep current month and previous month data. Then I can just notify my clients that they should save every months logs because they will be cleaned out eventually. This may not be the best option, but just a thought.

Also, is it possible to disable stats per account? I'm pretty certain that the problem lies on only a handfull of accounts that get tons of hits.

Thanks for any help!

in your domain logs folder type:

du -sh * | grep '[0-9]'M

It will display the bigger logs.

To make the big logs go away try,

echo -n & domain_log_name

If you are going to be deleting the logs.. run /scripts/runweblogs for that username before deleting it. So that their stats pages are updated.

Hope that helps :)

Craig.

Thanks for the reply! I just deleted a couple of the big ones where the site owner didn't care about stats and that cleared out about 45%.

I noticed the new tweak setting that removes log files after stats run. This function was exactly what I needed. Does anyone know if this function will screw up stats in anyway? I want my clients to have their stats but the log files get so big. Will that function solve the problem?
