we run a SSM On-Prem to manage licenses within our cisco devices. Lately I had to find out, that the syslog is filling up rather quickly. We talk about upwards of 2.5G a day! This fills up the /var/log partition really fast. Obviously the system generates a file called "messages" and fills it up with lots and lots of crap. It seems the system is stuck on "debug". Is there a way to reduce the syslog to only log higher priorities? Only option I found is to reduce the retention of the data.
Update: Found out, that our CUCM connects to the server every 30 seconds stating: "The product instance "cucm" in the Virtual Account "Default" connected and successfully renewed it's identity certificate." This must cause an awful lot of unneccesary traffic, is it possible to reduce that?
