    I have recently disabled analog stats on the server due to them consuming huge amounts of disk space on the server.

    Is it safe to run the following command to remove analog from all user's tmp directory?

    Code:
    rm -rf /home/*/tmp/analog*
    Could that do any damage except save some disk space? :)

    Thats the way to remove the information and no, it will cause no damage. As Budway says, your clients will lose the past logs they might need.

    Since analog stats has been disabled, aren't those old reports useless to the user? Other than that, would there be any other affect?

    They would be useless since they wouldn't be able to view them.

    True, but many still use log aggregation software locally.
