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.

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.
