Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a OSM server set up and it is writing a lot of debug messages to syslog, access.log, and journal logs. How do I disable the excessive logging?

I believe I have the access.log disabled via commenting out the CustomLog line in /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Not sure what to do with the others (syslog was 60GB before it filled my root partition...)

EDIT: Also, I saw an older message from Feb 2020 and nobody replied; I tried to find a solution but haven't found anything.

With regard to messages from renderd, there have been some issues raised about it such as https://github.com/openstreetmap/mod_tile/issues/170. https://github.com/openstreetmap/mod_tile/issues/13 suggests that later versions may have less of an issue with this.

It looks like Ubuntu 22.04 will have that later version in. Current released versions of Ubuntu and Debian do not yet.
