I have an embedded system (i.MX6) running a modified version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS bionic stored on its SD card and I want to know how to manage /var/log/syslog file size.
I noticed that systemd journal doesn't manage that file when I type this :
I really don't need systemd journals, but this is another issue...
Can someone confirm that systemd, apart from redirecting the standard output of services to /var/log/syslog (can be disabled apparently) does not propose anything else to manage syslog ?
Should I install "Logrotate" ? Since I'm using an SD card I should be careful and not to wear it out with an unsuitable configuration.
Are there other options ?
