Huge log file


I am trying to figure out what is cause the log file /var/log/bandwidth to expand in size so quickly, and what daemon is writing to the file. The last time I check this file it was a 4GB and that happened over the weekend, any suggestions?

RHES 4 2.6.9-34.EL #1

Not familiar with it but....

Never seen that particular kind of log, but theres a handy shell command called lsof you might wanna issue as so:

lsof /var/log/bandwidth

Then kill that sucker.... with a vengence...
