Description Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2018-03-27 13:41:14 CEST
Merge changes from Bug #46279 into UCS 4.2.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #46279 +++


We've had a customer whose UCS server with Samba and Proxy had log growth rate that required some 'taming' and we opted to modify SplitMode from 'uid' to 'login', since 'man systemd.conf':

  Controls whether to split up journal files per user [...] If "login",          
  actually logged-in users will get each their own journal files, but users
  without login session and system users will log into the system journal.
However as of now, there is no such UCR variable available we could use for tuning when needed.

We'd (that is, the customer and I) appreciate if you'd introduce systemd/journald/SplitMode as UCR variable.

What do you think abou this since there are already other journald-Related options present in UCS 4.2

Best regards
Mathieu Simon, Adfinis SyGroup AG

I've fixed a trivial typo in the variable description, but I don't think we need to rebuild the package for that (commit a22e7a0e17).
