Hello. I need your help on a somewhat strange problem. I was trying to configure some servers the other day and of course, I ended gazing at maillog. I was always using tail maillog, to see only the last lines, but once, I decided maillog is too crowded. So, instead of deleting and touch
ing it I decided moving it to maillog.old and creating a new file called maillog. I started one server who always poured tones of errors in maillog and did a tail maillog. Nothing. After a few minutes I figured out what was happening. The server poured everything in maillog.old.
Why? Dows it have to do with inodes?
