if you dont get answers immediately, thats not a cause for creating two threads..

http://androidforums.com/motorola-triumph/494084-alog-files.html

to answer your question. it SEEMS to be a problem lots of people are experiencing in the stock rom. I havent read any info on how to stop it.

a good idea is to upgrade to TG-Reloaded CyanogenMod 7 ROM. it doesnt have those problems.

Also, Froyocream sandwich is doing great for me, but its based on stock and I dont know if it also has that problem long term.

what i do know is miui and CM7 ran for over a month each on my phone and i never saw that issue.

if you dont want to do that. just keep deleting the logs.

They are log files that the stock OS creates. For some reason they don't always get deleted so you have to do it yourself.

I have no idea, I am running CM7 as well.

I am sure some other folks with that issue can help you out with that.

ok i think i might have it...

try putting this in /system/etc/init.d and reboot. (make sure you have a nandroid backup though! incase this doesnt work)

30alog_remover

if it works let me know and i will make it flashable and expand it to delete more of the alog* files...

as of right now, its set to delete

alog_events.txt
alog1
alog2
alog3
alog4
alog5

check to see if those get removed

Does our stock ROM support init.d scripts?

I have a script that removes all log files in cluding alog* plog* pmlog* and the logs in data/efslog/OEMDBG_LOG, /data/last_alog, and /data/last_klog. I have ran it on my phone(i put it in system bin and chmod'ed it to 755 so i can just call rmlogs from the terminal, but you can also place the script in /system/etc/init.d and it will run at boot on a kernel with init.d support)

In total it only cleared up like 15mb on my phone, but I am running a custom version of my bROM(we'll call it 1.0 1/2) and I have managed to get it to where it doesn't dump as many logs on my ROM, by changing a couple xml config files in the ROM(or at least I believe that is what did it lol!) but if you have a bunch of alog files the amount cleared will be monumental. The script deletes anything in /data starting with alog, plog and pmlog, and clears out the folders i mentioned above with the log files.

What is happening is that as certain events take place, the phone dumps logs of those events to the data partition. I believe this was used in debugging the phone and perhaps was left on by accident when the ROM was released. Most of the files never grow very large, but some of them(most notably the alog files) can grow to be very large.

Here is the link to the script. Like I said you can either put it in /system/etc/init.d and chmod it to 755 to have it run at boot(must have a kernel that supports init.d scripts) or you can place it in /system/bin and chmod the file to 755 and you can run it simply by opening a terminal and type su then rmlogs. I am including the script in my 1.1 ROM for easy cleaning of log files.

rmlogs script

If anyone needs help getting the script copied and the permissions set on it(chmod) then let me know. you must be rooted in order to run the script and to place it and chmod it. For init.d support you need a kernel that runs init.d scripts(just about every custom kernel does)

@thangfish, its more to do with the kernel, like if you run my kernel on the stock ROM, then init.d scripts can be ran, because my kernel runs init.d scripts on any ROM. pwn's kernel however requires busybox to be installed with the run-parts binary and it has to be installed to /system/bin because of the way he set his init.d support up. I'm not sure about the other kernels.

And the reason why cm7 and miui don't do this is the way their framework is set up. It's not set up to dump log files all the time. I'm sure this was a blunder by Motorola in there hurried release of this phone.

So... For the OP's question...
On stock, there is little that can be done.
You will need to be rooted at the very least.

To automatically delete the files, you need to be rooted, with a custom kernel.

To keep the files from being made to begin with, you need a different ROM.

Actually, I think I saw a mod that allowed init.d scripts to be run on stock.

Yes... Here's a link..

Yeah you had it in the right direction! Without being on a stock rom its hard to tell what all files need to be removed lol! I had to edit my script quite a bit before I got all of them gone!

New user here. Ziggy's YouTube post got me interested in this topic. I have an unrooted MT and don't believe I am experiencing this alog problem. I realize you probably have to be rooted to see the files on the filesystem, but unless I see free memory shrinking significantly, I will assume all is well on my MT.

My comment is, is there any chance that these alog files are being created and appended due to some particular installed program that is causing a lot of errors? I understand that perhaps the original Motorola developers forgot to remove the debugging flags before they compiled the official ROM, but unless there are errors or comments to log, not much would really happen.

Just a thought on my part. And thanks to Ziggy for getting me interested enough to register and participate.

Location of /data block on Triumph from: cat /proc/mounts
/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 /data ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,errors=continue,data=orde red 0 0
/data

#Terminal Commands#
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk8 /data
cd /data
rm alog_events
exit

Once deleted, the OS will recreate it again but it will start out much smaller.
I was able to gain back 600MB of internal storage after running this.

I have found the alog and other log file issues to be a two part problem. Part is in the rom and part is in the kernel. On bROM o had found some configuration files that were on the stock rom that had a by change of debugging entries turned on, well I disabled all those in vertical early versions of bROM and had it to where they would be huge files but you would still get a couple MB of log files accumulated. Then I found some entries in the kernel config file where more debugging was enabled, so with bROM and my latest kernels, no align files.

The lucky thing about the triumph is that it cones basically rooted, with a sudo such binary in xbin and they left the system being mounted as read/write in the kernel so even without rooting this phone with like gingerbreak or something, you can gain root access from a terminal emulator and can delete those log files like that!

So my Triumph is bordering on unusable due to something taking up about 90% of my internal memory. If I want to see if it's the log files, what would be my next step? I downloaded a terminal emulator, but don't know how to navigate to the proper place to delete the log files.

Also, are there any log files that should not be deleted? Any possible side-effects from randomly deleting log files?

Thanks!

I'm no pro, but this is how I rooted my Triumph and delete the log files.

Root:
- Taken from article with link that no longer works - Prepaid Androids | PrepaidAndroids.net
- Can not vouch for the 'unroot' portion because I haven't done it

Step 1: Download Android Terminal Emulator from the market.

Step 2: Open up the Emulator and type in sudo, you should get the # symbol.

Step 3: Type in the following code:
ln -s /system/xbin/sudo /system/bin/su
ln -s /system/xbin/sudo /system/xbin/su

Step 4: Reboot and you should have root access. NOTE: This will not install busybox, so if you wish to have busybox you will have to install it from the market or manually. This just provides you with root access.

To unroot using this method you just open the emulator and type sudo then type this:
rm -rf /system/bin/su
rm -rf /system/xbin/su

Delete files:
I do it manually using a file explorer (File Expert).
The log files are located in device's internal data directory.
See b_randon14's long post above for the files to delete.

So simple that even I can do it!

I deleted some of the alof files that were taking up space. Some of my apps won't connect to the internet now. Have to assume the deletions and immediate inability to connect are directly related.

Not if you deleted what was posted above, as stated they are simply log files of system events. Absolutely nothing to do with your Internet connection.

Well something went whacky. I ended up unrooting and rerooting and that solved the problem.

And can pmlog.log, pmlog.log.1, pmlog.log.2, etc. be deleted as well. My God, I have never seen so many log files that just keep getting bigger and bigger in time.

You can delete them or get a custom ROM. Everything but HDMI works on MTDEV CM7. I know of no other solution.

I'm just quoting what a previous post mentioned,I can't remember who it was,but all you need to do to stop the memory loss is delete the (.alog) files then reboot your phone & go back to the same .alog files & they will be a lot smaller in size then just remove all the permissions for each (.alog) file & they will never grow again more than a few kbs.Of course you have to be rooted & use a file manager like Esfile explore.This worked for me.Never had to worry about these files ever growing again.Like I said I take no credit for this brilliant idea,I'm just sharing it.Most likely the op has moved on like myself.

I've posted that for people a number of times.
It's simple and it works for those who want to run stock ROM for whatever reason.

I think maybe it should be a sticky, judging by all the new posts that continue asking for a solution to the killer, phone eating alog files.
