I generally use /etc/rc.local script for having running EW automatically after starting or restarting a server. The mentioned script contains the next lines:
su - sysop -c "source /home/sysop/ew/run/params/ew_linux.bash&& startstop &"
In a case for a server with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS after this script has been executed by rc-local service it starts filling the syslog with the next message:
Press return to print Earthworm status, or
type restart nnn where nnn is proc id or name to restart, or
type quit<cr> to stop Earthworm.
and it ends up eating the entire disk space in few hours. It is a madness to have this error(?) which I had not experienced before. In fact, this is still working and starting earthworm automatically in an old ubuntu system.
Any idea what I could be doing wrong? or maybe I need to update/change something.
As a workaround I modified the script so that the the message (errors or notifications) are redirected:
su - sysop -c "source /home/sysop/ew/run/params/ew_linux.bash&& startstop > /dev/null 2>&1"
