Hostapd: ath0_wlan0: WPA rekeying GTK

  • Hi

    Is there a way I can configure the logging facilities or even suppress this message in 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386)?

    hostapd: ath0_wlan0: WPA rekeying GTK

    This floods my wireless log every 3 minutes as configured in "Key rotation" field. I don't see the point having this in the log as this also fills up my disk.

    This logging is all to ram only unless you have setup something different so I wouldn't worry about your disk.
    You can set the rekeying interval to something higher if you wish. There is some trade off in security.

    I have Key Rotation set to 3600 and Master Key Regeneration set to 7200.
