Re: [multitail] Multitail prevents logs from updating?



I've been running regular "tail -f" on the same 3 file for 2 days, no problems so far.

FYI, this is remote, using putty on  an OpenVZ VM (if that makes any difference)

Oh it definately yes is.
Can you try running plain tail -f on it as well?
Because multitail uses regular tail so if it stops, regular tail should stop as well.

I thought about that but they're scheduled for weekly rotation on Sundays and this has been during the last few days.

Perhaps MultiTail was never designed to be running for long periods (like days)?

Perhaps log rotation?
