    Hi ,

    While checking I can see that a process is running
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/splitlogs --dir=/etc/apache2/logs/domlogs --main=hostname....

    Per minute it is creating around 2 GB data file in
    /var/log/apache2

    2.7G stderr.log.2018_12_16
    4.3G stderr.log.2018_12_16.01
    2.1G stderr.log.2018_12_16.02
    8.2G stderr.log.2018_12_16.03
    2.6G stderr.log.2018_12_16.04
    2.6G stderr.log.2018_12_16.05
    2.0G stderr.log.2018_12_16.06
    3.0G stderr.log.2018_12_16.07
    2.5G stderr.log.2018_12_16.08
    3.3G stderr.log.2018_12_16.09
    2.4G stderr.log.2018_12_16.10
    2.1G stderr.log.2018_12_16.11
    4.8G stderr.log.2018_12_16.12
    2.2G stderr.log.2018_12_16.13
    2.4G stderr.log.2018_12_16.14
    2.2G stderr.log.2018_12_16.15

    Also getting a file created under : /var/log/messages

    Also getting the files of 3 to 4 gb each with huge log under /var/log/apache2/domlogs

    Can you suggest how to stop these logs ?

    You should probably look at the log file and see what is getting generated so often and resolve that problem. The logs are just an indication of another problem happening.

    Well if you can find what is getting repeated over and over and then post it here.

    Hello @Sujoy Dhar,

    Feel free to open a support ticket if you need assistance understanding what's filling up your Apache logs, and to verify which settings you can enable to reduce the amount of data stored in the log files. You can post the ticket number here and we'll update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
