strange eth* devices related messages appear/are logged > why? > fix?


I finally made the problems i explan here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...oblems-753966/

go away (dunno really how, this time the pppoeconf internet connection didnt stop working after reboot).

now i have a "problem", if im not using a GUI, i noticed there were WIERD messages flooding my screen, messages that are logged in 2 diferent files, and im attaching both as examples (with just a few messages, both files were 16++ mb in size, and rapidly growing)

the more ETH* interfaces i have enabled, the more messages appear, and more frequently.

Any idea why i get those ? how to fix the reason for they to appear, or at least, to prevent them from appearing ?

thx

Without having looked at these "weird" messages, I'd venture a guess that your syslogger is configured to log some/all messages to the console, in addition to logging them to the messages.log and kernel.log files.

Examine your syslog.conf file to see what's being logged where, and adjust accordingly.

Then, restart syslogd.

I believe there's another setting also, in the kernel, which can be controlled via the kernel boot line and maybe other means, which tells the kernel what device to use as the default console. If adjusting your syslogger hasn't solved your issue to your liking, then hopefully by the time you need further help, someone will have provided a bit more info about this 'other setting' to which I refer.

Best of luck,
Sasha

Do you have a firewall running, that includes any logging.

Cheers.

Excellent point! iptables (among others) will log such data too. Nice catch @ MQMan.

I have iptables, yes (i didnt explain it here cause i left a link :P )

i didnt set loggin in iptables tho.

for now i commented the lines in rsyslog.conf that mentioned the files that were used for loggin this stuff (syslog, kern.log and messages)

but this prevents loggin of some other stuff.

And did that stop the stuff going onto the console?
If so....

...then you need to break up the sections of the syslog.conf file, and log individual items to where you want them to go. Or edit the file such that nothing gets logged to consoles, only to files.
