Issue/Introduction

Since upgrading to vertica 10.x we notice that the catalog directory is filling up.

How can we verify the settings for the vertica logrotate tool.

Environment

Release : 21.2

Component : Vertica

Cause

Vertica 10.x vertica.log is more detailed than in 9.x.

There is a lot of default logging associated with the Odata API calls.

So it may be necessary to adjust the settings for logrotate in your environment.

Resolution

The cronjob for logrotate is set up automatically when you install vertica.

But the actual settings are configurable for your business needs.

The current run-time settings are stored in flat files in:

/opt/vertica/config/logrotate

drdata shows the settings for vertica.log

 

To change the settings you would use the adminTools command:

NOTE - a typical catalog directory is expected to be 100g.

You can add more if you need to keep more logs or for a longer time.
