After an Ubuntu 64 virtual server update from 10.04 to 12.04, I get the log message in var/log/syslog:

kernel: imklog Error return from sys_sycall: 1

It's writing constantly to the log file. syslog, kern.log and kern.log.1 has filled up my disk. So far I just updated the kernel.

I'm not sure I remember right. I think we rolled back to 10.04, or did a clean install. There was so many services that where causing issues, as we used to be on 8.04. –  nicoX Feb 26 at 15:22

The solution/workaround that my co-worker who ran into this issue used was to disable the imklog module by running sed -i -e 's/^\$ModLoad imklog/#\$ModLoad imklog/g' /etc/rsyslog.conf as suggested here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rsyslog/+bug/523610/comments/49
