Cinder writes unexpectedly to "/var/log/messages"

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We deactivated the use of syslog in /etc/cinder/cinder.conf (use_syslog=False) on the controller nodes but we notice that cinder-api and cinder-volume are still logging to /var/log/messages
[root@tng1-nfv01-cont1008 ~]# tail -f /var/log/messages | grep cinder
