I recently installed hobbit to monitor nodes in a cluster. It's a very
good product - thanks to all who have worked on it!
I noticed after a while, that the hobbit home directory was growing in
an apparently boundless fashion. On further investigation, I discovered
that on one server, my history files had grown to several gigabytes.
After a while, this growth becomes unsustainable.
Am I doing something wrong? How do others manage the growth of hobbit
history and log files?
I'm not referring to those in /var/log/hobbit - that's easy to handle
with logrotate. I'm concerned about the directories associated with
each client under the server data directory.
