Giant dump files

Post by firemanking » Mon Oct 29, 2018 11:31 pm

Hi all,

First time posting here ^^;
So as the title says, I found out that SoftEther VPN Client had been creating these dump files, which are each ~150 MB, but then in large quantities.
How large? Well, it's about 1.4 TB when I finally found what the heck was eating up my disk space.
Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Thanks,

take a look into your logging settings. You might have enabled full package logging. Those go into the install sub folders.

Hi drewex, thanks for the reply.
Where can I find that setting? Is it the client setting or the specific VPN setting?

Thanks!

What is the name of those files?
Could you give me an example?

I completely disabled logging with "chattr +i"

applied on security_log, package_log, server_log - no single file created afterwards

I use OrangePiZero and package "chattr" doesnot exist, so I put microSD card into UBUNTU PC and changed it there, it works!

No idea how to make it with NOR based devices ... any idea?
