I was perplexed to find that, when running for instance
journalctl -f showed my logs to stop on Apr 20th, 8 months ago. I piped to less,
journalctl | less and pressed
G to go to the end, same thing.
Then I did
journalctl | less and went down 'slowly' (
ctrl+d), this way I was able to go way further than Apr 20th...
Theres a LOT in the logs! I think it is because there's a limit on what is being loaded. However, shouldn't the logs get rotated? Or somehow pruned without user intervention?
SystemMaxUse isn't set (a solution I found here).
I could try the above, but I kinda want to get to the bottom of it.
I'm on Manjaro 5.8.18-1.
Any help or insights are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
