Huge syslog flood on wifi tethering deactivation



  • Hello,

    Thanks for your work on ubPorts. I detected a problem with the WiFi tethering. The /var/log/syslog is flooded with huge amount of this lines :

    Feb 20 11:17:02 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [164989.724292]*********wlanP2P_early_suspend************
    Feb 20 11:17:02 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [164989.724300]*********p2pEarlySuspend************
    Feb 20 11:17:02 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [164989.724307]ip is not avaliable.
    

    The time of first line seems to corresponds to the time of deactivation of tethering. The amount of messages is absolutely crazy (about 50000 ~ 60000 lines a second !) and the storage memory saturate in minutes. I noticed some lines are incomplete.

    Then saturated the phone become nearly unusable. Particularly it is impossible to open the "console" app to correct this problem however SSH daemon works and "sudo" too and I was able to delete this huge file (after making backup on my PC to read it). Note : after deleting the syslog don't forget to reboot to close the file's inode and free the storage.

    My phone is a bq Aquarius E4.5 Ubuntu Edition. The network then using tethering was not very good but works. The duration and amount of data exchanged with tethering on this session was very low (~10 minutes and <1 MBytes).

    Thanks for ubPorts.
