Configuration of Access and Error Logs Retention and Size Policies for Nginx in Instana
Currently, the access and error logs generated by Nginx in Instana are stored under /var/log/instana/nginx and can occupy significant disk space. However, there is no way to configure retention and size policies for these logs, which can lead to storage issues and impact system performance.
We request Instana to add a feature that enables users to set retention and size policies for the access and error logs generated by Nginx. This feature would allow users to control the storage space consumed by logs, ensuring that disk space is utilized efficiently and minimizing the impact on system performance.
With this feature, users could specify the retention period and maximum size of the logs, after which the logs would be automatically deleted or rotated. This would give users the flexibility to balance log retention requirements with storage constraints, optimizing the use of system resources.
We believe that this enhancement would greatly benefit users of Instana and improve the overall usability and performance of the platform. We urge the Product Management team to consider this feature request and implement it in future releases.
