Re: [HTCondor-users] schedd stopped working (died?) with SchedLog filled with 'WriteUserLog checking for event, log rotation, but no lock'

Hi Todd,

many thanks for the lead!
Actually, I may have got fooled by /var/log being a 'local' ext4 with
sufficient space/inodes (disk I/O OKish as well) - while the node is
actually a VM :-/
Maybe the scheduler node got 'thwarted' by some other guest or the
underlying attached storage!? Going to check...

Cheers and thanks,
