I have a Ubuntu (14.x) host serving as a Git repository box (via GitLab CE). Around 50 users are using shared user (in this case
gitlab) to connect to the box to sync their repositories. This method works quite fine but unluckily it totally nukes my
/var/log/auth.log which easily grows to 10 gigs per day with lines like this:
Apr 22 14:10:25 gitlab sshd: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user git by (uid=227) Apr 22 14:10:25 gitlab sshd: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user gitlab
Is there a method to suppress this messages for this user and stop flooding my logfile?
