    server filling syslog with messages

    Suddenly, I'm seeing messages like:
    Sep 23 01:34:40 aptiva squeezeboxserver[634]: [22-09-22 18:28:08.7245] Slim::Web::Graphics::artworkRequest (339) Looking for: html/images/Players/receiver.jpg in skin Default
    in /var/log/syslog.
    I'm on Logitech Media Server Version: 8.2.1 - 1652959290 @ Thu 19 May 2022 01:30:57 PM CEST
    Debian 10 (buster)
    Is there a setting I'm missing?

    Check your settings in Settings/Advanced/Logging. You can select the
    Default settings at the top, and make sure you check the "keep during
    reboot" or similar box.

    thanks but I was concerned about where the log was going. I expected it to be in the squeezebox logs, not in syslog.
    i will try your advice anyway.

    Still putting what look like scanner messages in syslog. Examples:

    Sep 25 04:00:25 aptiva squeezeboxserver[634]: [22-09-24 04:00:25.2507] Slim::Plugin::xPL::Plugin::xplExecuteCallback (619) Warning: Called without a client: rescan
    ...
    Sep 25 04:00:25 aptiva squeezeboxserver[634]: [22-09-24 17:00:43.3916] Slim::Utils::Scanner::Local::__ANON__ (288) Get changed tracks count

    This is triggered by a scheduled rescan.

    I'm also getting my syslog flooded by messages like this, several times per second:
    "squeezeboxserver[932]: #011file:///var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/clientplaylist_000000000000.m3u doesn't exist on disk - skipping!"
    16145 lines out of 98886 are from squeezeboxserver.
    (some of?) the same messages also appear in the /var/log/squeezeboxserver/server.log file

    All my debug settings are the default values.

    Is there no different line before or after that? Can you share a longer
    excerpt pluss the full server.log.zip file?

    If that's still true, then I'd recommend you upgrade your system.

    Unless you have a specific use for it disable the xPL Interface plugin.

    LMS uses Log4Perl ... so perhaps that has somehow been configured to send to syslog.

    It look like starting LMS with -logfile syslog will make it send data there instead of its own logs.

    Are you seeing the same log entries in syslog AND scanner.log/server.log ?
