    Log File eating up tons of space

    Hi there,

    I noticed that after we rescan our music database, my computer was losing approx. 5GB of memory. Tracked down a large file called slimserver.log. It's 10gb. Is this some sort of cache file that I should be clearing on a regular basis?

    If so, how do I clear it, or can it just be deleted?

    Thanks,
    Heidi

    It's the log in which slimserver notes what it's doing or if there are any
    problem. This file usually is very small. Please check that you don't run
    slimserver with debug flags (-d_* parameters or Server Settings/Debugging)
    turned on. Especially scanning can generate tons of messages if eg. d_info
    is active.

    Just delete it. You might have to shut down slimserver to do so.
