ERC General inquiry

Hi everyone,

Can anyone help me determine if the logs in the elm.logs already processed by ERC. In our environment the ERC stopped collecting events at one point during investigation we saw that /var/log/data/inline/thirdparty.log/elm.logs directory is 100% utilized. Are the logs in this directory already processed by ERC (meaning to say, parsed, normalized) and ready to send to ESM. Im afraid that if I delete the logs under elm.logs to free up some utilization itl also delete the information meant for the ESM. Can someone confirm that if we delete the logs in elm.logs (raw logs) the data will be sent to ESM after the ERC can funtion again. Thanks.

Re: ERC General inquiry

add_logfile_elm.* are meant for sending to ELM. if you delete them, you should see ERC disk usage go down. How many files are under /elm.logs and size?

The files in /var/log/data/inline/thirdparty.log/elm.logs are only for the ELM. If you delete them they will not be put into the ELM so you will not have them archived.
