    Hello,

    To clear main log files you can simply run:

    nxserver –logrotate

    This will clean main log files, archive and save old logs under /usr/NX/var/log/logrotate/ directory.

    Saved files will be greatly reduced in size, but if you want you can delete them after logrotate

    procedure has finished.

    It’s also possible to set automatic log rotation https://www.nomachine.com/FR01L02806

    There are also session log files usually it  shouldn’t take large space, but if you want to clean them

    you can do it by:

    rm -rf /var/log/node/T-*

    rm -rf /var/log/node/F-*

    rm -rf /.nx/F-*

    rm -rf /.nx/T-*

    and in case you are using latest release:

    rm -rf /.nx/node/F-*

    rm -rf /.nx/node/T-*

    Hello,

    Last reply didn’t show correct paths, here’s how it should be:
    There are also session log files usually it shouldn’t take large space, but if you want to clean them

    you can do it by:

    rm -rf 'NX installation directory'/var/log/node/T-*
    rm -rf 'NX installation directory'/var/log/node/F-*
    
    rm -rf 'User home directory'/.nx/F-*
    
    rm -rf 'User home directory'/.nx/T-*

    and in case you are using latest release:

    rm -rf 'User home directory'/.nx/node/F-*
    
    rm -rf 'User home directory'/.nx/node/T-*
