      On many other OSs we include logrotate with the package. As seen in this ticket the impact is that drives can fill up.

      We don't see this with puppet itself because it goes to syslog. Ideally we would either send to syslog or have the agent manage logrotation by itself.

    Description

      The Problem

      AIX doesn't have log rotate or as far as I can tell any default way to rotate logs so the pxp-agent logs grow indefinitely on a default installation of AIX.
