    Question any way to change logging level of gdm3? syslog being filled with junk

    Howdy,

    When i look in /var/log/syslog, the (literal) vast majority of text in there consists of repeated outputting of the state of the NVIDIA graphics driver, 24/7/365.24.
    I am getting the below output, several times per minute, all the time. Makes it hard to find other things in syslog and also I wonder even about the effect on the life of the SSD.

    I am using ubuntu 20.04, running cinnamon as my desktop manager. I am using the recommended NVIDIA provided driver and am not having any problems with GPU/display.

    Can anyone help me change the logging level so syslog doesnt get so polluted?

    Thanks for any ideas

    Rabu

    Please use code tags - if you are using New Reply button - highlight text and use the # button in the text box header.

    If using Quick Reply then [code] at the beginning and [/code] at the end.
