Error in filelog??



  • Hello guys

    I'd like to know if is right to see strange characters in /var/log/system.log??

    when I open my file in console, I see this:

    Feb 21 16:24:11 nat syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel
    Feb 21 16:25:19 nat sshd[2190]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for root from
    10.0.0.200 port 4123 ssh2
    Feb 21 16:25:19 nat sshlockout[2194]: sshlockout starting up
    Feb 21 16:25:19 nat sshlockout[2194]: sshlockout starting up

    ^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@

    the this keeps in 98% of the file.

    is that right? it seems like if the file/file system were corrupted.

    Thanks a lot



  • FAQ.  clog syslog.



  • I have not found this info on faq.pfsense.com, but is this issue because of specific size of log file? because clog specifies the specific size of the file, the 'empty' part of the file is filled with those characters (^@)?? I mean, this doesnt means that this is a file being corrupted?

    I'm asking for this because I have had many problems with core dumped files in pfsense filesystem, after some ups fail; I dont know why but even today, when my ups fail some times (my ups battery doesnt last too much), it seems that some files are corrupted and the system begins to fail in some parts; last week it happened and traffic graph didnt worked anymore… so after have re-installed the system, I see this and feel worried about.

    Thanks
