Description Michal Skrivanek 2014-12-04 08:19:24 UTC
thought to be fixed by bug 1114908 but it's not.
Still too much flooding, making any debugging close to impossible, stuff rotates away too quickly, too much noise...

see for a possible fix

Due to supportability concerns suggesting to block 3.5 release

Comment 5 Jiri Belka 2015-01-05 12:43:50 UTC
ok vdsm-

(checked conf and log file)

# grep 'DEBUG.*::IO' /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log 
Thread-26::DEBUG::2015-01-05 12:31:34,139::__init__::298::IOProcessClient::(_run) Starting IOProcess...

Comment 6 Michal Skrivanek 2015-01-06 15:43:44 UTC
note it does seem to NOT work on upgrade, logger.conf is not being update. so be careful when updating drom intermediate builds (beta included)

Comment 7 Jiri Belka 2015-01-08 14:47:24 UTC
usual rpm policy - if logger.conf is pristine (not modified) it would be replaced, if anybody touched logger.conf then the file would be saved on filesystem as logger.conf.rpmnew

Comment 8 Michal Skrivanek 2015-01-13 10:43:43 UTC
but it is not the case and on upgraded systems there is still excessive logging
