I have a Postfix mail server running on Ubuntu 8.10 and when
/var/log/mail.log or any other file reaches exactly 2GB of data syslog stops writing any data to the file.
Is there some kind of limit for a file logged through syslog?
I'm discussing with my colleagues if we should be doing an hourly logrotate on the files in question, and hoping that will stop them from hitting this limit. If we have 2-3 hours worth of log files it should be enough when they're this large to find any large problems.
