Angry How to keep only one Systemd Journal log in /run/log/journal

Hi all,

Please find the systemd-journal.config below,


Here I'm giving a Storage= volatile, So the systemd-journal log will be stores in /run/log/journal. And I have only 4MB space for /run Partition. And dlt-system taking the SYS logs from /run/log/journal and updates in dlt-viewer. Once the system.journal file reaches max 2Mb Size then it will create a new file with same name system.journal and the older file will be like this
system@4a74c729c0a24e968d09e53717b21...979e290.journal. From here my problem starts, Once the second file will be generated dlt-system not updating the logs in dlt-viewer. Now My question is is possible to keep only one sys journal file in /run/log/journal folder. Seems like dlt-system not able to read if /run/log/journals has multiple .journal files. I have tried all the parameter which is available for systemd-journal.config But no luck. Any comments or suggestions are highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Maybe next figure out how to keep only one copy of post instead of in multiple forums.
