More options than are in the pfclient-config.json file?

#1
The default log location for pfc is in /var/log/pfclient/, and looking in the pfclient-config.json, I don't see any configuration to either change the log location or to disable it completely.

My goal is to either disable all logging, or change the log location to a USB stick to save wear on the SD. Preferably I would like to change the location as I use rsyslog to aggregate logs from all of my servers into a SQL db stored on another machine, including PiAware and FR24 on the same Pi.

Hi John,

No this is not currently an option, you might be able to mount the folder we write to another location such as a ramdisk?

I think you might be over optimising the SD card as these days they last a long long time. We've had receivers operating for over 5 years with no issues yet.

Ok, thanks for the response. I will go the ramdisk route if I can figure it out. Never done that before but now thinking about it, it's an even better option than the USB stick.
