no output at vertica.log

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.
