vertica.log was too large, so ran cat /dev/null > vertica.log to empty it. now nothing is output to this file, restart the database as well as the service don't help. does anyone know how to resolve this issue? thanks

    You may run the below command to write again in vertica.log
    kill -USR1 'head -1 /<full-path>_node0001_catalog/'

  • i ran the command, and got -bash: kill: (5028) - No such process
  • Hello XiangLi,

    Who owns the vertica.log file and what are the permissions of the file? A ls -ltr from the catalog directory will show this information.
