I came across this issue when I was checking Redis log file on server. When I looked at the Redis Log File, I wondered after seeing its size. It was about 4GB. When I tried to open that file, I got a prompt saying File is too large to open in notepad.
I further analyzed & stopped Redis Service and re-named the file. When I again started the service, I saw that Redis created a new file again with the same name as redis_log.txt on the same place. But this time it's size was 0KB.
Now, I went to browser & ran my application. After running my application for few minutes I again checked this file & found that there are multiple entries with the same information. See below:
 09 May 11:45:51.590 # WSA_IO_PENDING writing to socket fd 24  09 May 11:45:51.590 # clusterWriteDone written 2416 fd 15
These were two main entries which were logged thousands of time in that log file & due to this, log file size was increasing rapidly.
- Go to this location
- Open file
There you will see a section like below:
# Specify the server verbosity level. # This can be one of: # debug (a lot of information, useful for development/testing) # verbose (many rarely useful info, but not a mess like the debug level) # notice (moderately verbose, what you want in production probably) # warning (only very important / critical messages are logged) loglevel notice # Specify the log file name. Also 'stdout' can be used to force # Redis to log on the standard output. logfile "Logs/redis_log.txt"
This section tells us that there are 4 levels of logging. I had selected
notice which is recommended for production but this was creating lot of entries & continuously printing above messages.
In my opinion, you can change
notice. I hope, after changing
warning, only important messages will be logged. Hence, your issue will be resolved automatically.
