Keep your logs short with logrotate

tl;dr

If you are developing some application that writes a lot of logs use logrotate to keep them short and don’t allow them to reach gigabytes.


I’m developing in Symfony framework on daily basis. And on the development environment, it creates lots of logs. Every request is logged, every command is logged, every event subscriber is logged.

About getting out of the comfort zone

I like Fallout video games series. Well, the old ones – the last one I played was Fallout Tactics. But let’s focus on Fallout 2.

The game starts in a temple, and you are the Chosen One. Well, maybe. You have several challenges to overcome: giant ants, scorpions and, of course, the final guardian. If you fail, you will die.

But it’s a video game, of course, you survive and you defeat the guard. Then you will get harder and harder works to do, with the ultimate goal – finding GECK, Garden of Eden Creation Kit, a very powerful device capable of repairing the earth after a nuclear holocaust.
