(CO) Support Tip: Why is the vertica.log file continually growing and not rolling over for CO?
Hello CO Community,
There have been a number of people that have encountered issues with the vertica.log file continually growing and not rolling over. One possible reason has been identified for non-Virtual Appliance CO installations.
The rollover process for the vertica.log file is a crontab job that is run as the pv_vertica user. If password aging is enabled for this user, then the password will eventually expire. When the password is expired for a non-root user, it will prevent crontab processes from running.
More information and details for this specific situation is available within the following knowledge article.

I hope that this information is helpful!
Have a great week!
