Hi, I'm following the Openstack Icehouse on Ubuntu install guide and my Controller is running out of space. The nova-consoleauth and nova-conductor log files are massive -more than a gigabyte. any idea how to turn them off or bring them to normal? I've commented out "verbose=true" in the nova.conf.

secondly, i see the same log files in the /var/log/upstart directory..any reason for two locations?

take the bakup of the logs in controller node(keystone) and remove logs so that you can have enough space in controller node.

Logrotate can help to make other log files. It will avoid in making big log files.
