Re: repeated entries in /var/log/messages...

I really did not know what they are and thought something was going wrong. That is why I asked 'how to stop them'. But now I know, it's OK to have them :) and how to use them (just in case)

Thank you for your answers,

Since day 1 I installed debian, I see the following in the /var/log/messages:

Jul 28 21:01:08 woody -- MARK --
Jul 28 21:21:08 woody -- MARK --
Jul 28 21:41:08 woody -- MARK --

and they repeat every single hour at the exact same intervals. Does anyone know what they mean and how can I stop them?

I am running the stable release (woody).



It's so if your box crashes, you can pinpoint the time of the crash even if nothing (else) is being written to logs. Not sure why you care enough to want to stop them...
