Nagios++ log file getting too large


I have NSClient++ installed on our Windows 2003 servers. We are geeting very large log files on the servers, some of them are getting to 500mb + in size. Is there anyway of getting the log file to clear down overy month, or a way of creating a limit to the log file so our servers dont keep running out of space? Also is NSClent++ the best client for monitoring windows servers?

Many Thanks



I don’t speek for every one…
Sorry, as NSClient is designed for Nagios, ppl like myself would rather reboot Unix 20 times a day then sit threw a single Windows install. You might want to seek help here:


Windows or not… Just delete or rename the log file once a week and be happy. And of course make sure debug log is off.
