This is using Linux server. There are 40 GB hard disk space allocated for /. However, found that in /var/log/asterisk, the log file - messages, grows very fast; and within a week or 2, all disk space used up and consequencely, the application stops working. Is there a way to "rotate" the log file, let's say a new log file create if the log hits 500 mb or so?

Appreciate your help, thanks!

hi..
Yes, Linux offers a utility to handle the log files. It will automatically create the new log file if log hits to the threshold that you have set on it

/var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv/Master.csv /var/log/asterisk/debug /var/log/asterisk/event_log /var/log/asterisk/messages {
weekly
missingok
rotate 9
size 512000k
copytruncate
endscript
}
