last week I had a bit of a maintenance spree on my main business server....before the syslog was about 45MB for a day with lots of warnings and some errors too.

here is the "after" for almost a day.... 8) :D

go for it, it's a great way to learn! :D

and you should have seen my mail server one.....I had some typos in the signing table for DKIM (it was always the same typo, caused by copy&paste), so for about 50 mail accounts each outgoing message caused about 100 lines of errors and debug info... :lol:

was a fun thing to solve, because the errors were thrown by spamassassin, and NOT by opendkim...now syslog is down from 500MB/day to 15MB/day (which is normal because of all the MX activity logging).

I might :-k. Been cleaning up the server logs at work for a while already (although long way still to clean up that freaking mess).

That's.... a pretty amazing improvement xD

start with either the most obvious and easiest ones, easiest are usually the ones in context with a service you know well already. or pick the one first that causes the most entries, solving those are very motivating... :lol:
