Default CUPS log files flooding

The latest updates to my 2.6.9-78.ELsmp system has caused the /var/log/
cups/access_log files to fill up the /var partition in short order.
This causes havoc with samba connections to Windows computers and
printing through the RedHat server stops working after awhile.


Thanks, Adrian Sender, for the temporary fix, ie. modifying /etc/cups/
cupsd.conf to set the LogLevel to none.


When will a fix be out for this problem?

If there's something in the logs, especially that much, it might be a configuration error on your system. What are all the entries about ?

These are the same errors Adrian is reporting on his system.
httpd is not running on my system.

I missed the beginning of this (sorry, HR told my director this past Tuesday
that they wouldn't renew my contract for him, and yesterday was my last
day...). Anyway, what was the original LogLevel, and what were the kinds of
errors that you got?

Hmmmm... Can you point your browser to the box, port 631? If I remember
correctly, CUPS *itself* serves http on port 631, which is how they expect you
to manage it. 200, of course, is saying everything's copacetic. Again, I'd look
to see if you had something lower than warn as the LogLevel, maybe info.

Default CUPS log files flooding

I did my last update today using up2date. The update that I did on
August 28th included the updates that changed this system. I do have
ten other RedHat system at various versions; I don't see the problem
on the other systems.


The errors in the /var/log/cups/access_log have always been

localhost - - [05/Sep/2008:14:20:18 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200 192
localhost - - [05/Sep/2008:14:20:18 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200 192

However, after the last upgrade this access_log is large very quickly
and fills up the

/var partition. I have turned off the LogLevel on
cups to none, so access_log has stopped growing.

There is also something else going on as well.

/var is still filling up. I know that the log and named directories
in /var contain the files that are growing.

Could it be that the spool files are not being deleted?

I have a cron job that deletes the spool cups jobs every night.

I made no changes in the system except to add a few users since the
updates and the time the problem began to occur.


We are also running samba and named on the system.

When up2date did the updating, did it update some configuration files?

I think you hit on the problem. I changed back to the
cupsd.conf.save. access_log is

still getting the

localhost - - [05/Sep/2008:14:20:18 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200
192
localhost - - [05/Sep/2008:14:20:18 -0400] "POST / HTTP/1.1" 200
192


messages. However, /var switched from 71% full to 51% full.

I will now look and see what changed in cupsd.conf. I will get back
to you.


Thanks.
