Hi everybody,

for some time now I have had the problem that the log function keeps collapsing. I would be happy if someone could give me a hand so that I can solve the problem.
At the moment, I have to restart the Raspi at least once a day to get the log to work again. The end of the log looks like this:

openhab.log :

there it stops

Does anybody have an idea ?

  • is that always about the same file size when it stops to log into the file ?
  • there is still ( enough ) free diskspace on the partition logging is being done ?

@Ap15e
Thank you for the answer. However, the cause described there seems to be different. In my case, the log runs in principle, but stops after a while.

The “org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg” also exists and has the content,
I expect. If you think it makes sense, I can post the content.

@Wolfgang_S

is that always about the same file size when it stops to log into the file ?

Hm, it doesn’t seem so. But I will observe this.

there is still ( enough ) free diskspace on the partition logging is being done ?

Yes, definitely. 5.2GB are still free.

I find it noticeable that the writing seems to stop in the middle of a new row. You can see incomplete date entries at the last row.

It happend again:

Edit:
Now I deleted all log files in the directory and did a reboot.
Let’s see if it made a difference. But that will become clear tomorrow at the earliest
:thinking:

Edit 2
–removed–

It still happens (about once a day). :slightly_frowning_face:
Does anyone have an idea what can I do get the reason ?

The problem still exists but I found out something:

Today the log of events.log stopped at 17:48:28.
The log of openhab.log stopped later at 19:59:52.

I also looked into the karaf console and saw that the logging still goes on
even if the two logfiles are not written anymore.

Any ideas ?

Some additional ideas (in no specific order):

Thank you. I will try these tips and will report…
