Log file control in Bigip /var/log/ts


I have a system running 11.5.1 with modules LTM, GTM, AFM, APM and ASM provisioned. The issue I am seeing is that the /var/log system is filling up to capacity.


While looking at the issue I found that there are large log files in /var/log/ts that are taking up most of the space and from what I can tell, are not being managed by the log rotation process like the logs in /var/log are.


So my questions is, what is generating the log found in /var/log/ts and where can I configure them to be rolled like the other log files?


A sampling of the log in this directory are:


bd_agent.log bd.log checksums.log dcc.log prepare_files.log sendcmd.log ts_configsync.log ts_debug.log psbnagd.log


Any help on locating where to configure the management of these files would be great.




what are those file? sol14020: BIG-IP ASM daemons (11.x)


Do you have up to 24 files per log?


Change the number of archive copies that the system retains


The tmsh log-rotate common-backlogs option specifies the maximum number of log files that the system retains for each log file. By default, the BIG-IP system is configured to retain up to a maximum of 24 archive copies of each log file.

As mentioned in the original post. These files are apparently not being managed by the log rotation service. There are no backup files, just the ones I listed that are 30-45Mb each. I am trying to identify what service on the BigIP is generating some or all of the files, and how I can either turn down the logging level, or add it to the list of log files being rotated.
