/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ARDAgent.crash.log was filling up server HDD.

I think I addressed the issue here, yet it's a service I don't really care about so I'd just like to force roll the log crash.log file.

Can someone please show me how?

Thanks.

    Just delete the log file.

    Log files are generally rotated periodically when the periodic updaters run in the wee hours of the morning provided the computer is not turned off or asleep.

     

    Or you can write an Applescript to periodically erase/roll the log.
