How to change Candlepin log rotation settings on a Satellite server?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • The logrotate for tomcat and candlepin preserves the old logs for 52 days
  • This causes huge amount on collected logs, and possible an out-of-disk space
  • Are there any reasons to keep large logfiles for 52 days or can we change this to a shorter default?
  • And if yes, is there a minimum (f.e. be sure that all tasks are completed)?
