[Bug 1618188] [NEW] systemd journal should be persistent by default: /var/log/journal should be created
(too old to reply)

Public bug reported:

After upgrading 14.04 -> 16.04, key services are now running on systemd
and using the systemd journal for logging. In 14.04, key system logs
like /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog were persistent, but after
the upgrade to 16.04 there has a been a regression of sorts: Logs sent
to systemd's journald are now being thrown away during reboots.

This behavior is controlled by the `Storage=` option in
`/etc/systemd/journald.conf`. The default setting is `Storage=auto`
which will persist logs in `/var/log/journal/`, *only if the directory
already exists*. But the directory was not created as part of the 14.04
-> 16.04 upgrade, so logging was being lost for a while before I
realized what was happening.

This issue could be solved by either creating /var/log/journal or
changing the default Storage behavior to `Storage=persistent`, which
would create the directory if need be.

## Related reference

* `systemd` currently compounds the issue by having ["journal --disk-usage" report memory usage as disk usage](https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/4059), giving the impression that the disk is being used for logging when it isn't.
* [User wonders where to find logs from previous boots, unaware that the logs were thrown away](http://askubuntu.com/questions/765315/how-to-find-previous-boot-log-after-ubuntu-16-04-restarts)

## Recommended fix

Restoring persistent logging as the default is recommended.

This needs a public policy discussion first: We will not enable
persistent journal without also removing rsyslog by default, as we
really don't want to log everything twice.

Thanks for the response, Martin.

Where will the public policy discuss take place?

Perhaps one possibility for a interim solution is for rsyslog to log to
journald by default instead of to disk by default and otherwise
maximally direct services to log into journald instead of rsyslog.

It should happen on https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-
devel . However, I'm not going to start it now, we are past feature
freeze for yakkety and I have enough other things to work on in this
release. Feel free to start it yourself of course!

No, it's the other way around -- rsyslog should pull its data from the
journal (but that's a different topic actually). The journal already
collects all syslog() calls, it logs what rsyslog does plus a lot more.

I understand it is not desirable to have duplicate logging, but there is
a corner case where logging that is done during systemd shutdown is lost
because rsyslog is killed. This makes shutdown look broken due to it
being non-deterministic exactly when rsyslog is killed.

Currently, the easiest way to get accurate logging is creating
/var/log/journal.

## Sometimes shutdown logs are brief:

Oct 13 18:51:07 HOST systemd[1]: Stopped target Cloud-init target.
Oct 13 18:51:07 HOST systemd[1]: Starting Unattended Upgrades Shutdown...
Oct 13 18:51:07 HOST systemd[1]: Stopping Session 1 of user ubuntu.

## Sometimes more detailed

I actually don't mind the "logging everything twice" bit. As journald
has good garbage collection built in, and has much better timestamps.

Trivial patch that just ensures the /var/log/journal directory gets
created.

Given the discussions on ubuntu-devel/discuss, the controversial part
seemed to be more around removing rsyslog, and we haven't gotten (or I
haven't seen) any pushback on just doing both for now.

dino99>the actual 'non permanent' journal by default is that most users prefer;
Why do you believe that? The permanent journal has real support/logging benefits.

@dino99 how was "what most users prefer" prefer determined? Was there a
poll?

Systemd already has configuration options to limit the growth the the
journal. As documented in `man journald.conf`, the defaults are already
set to prevent filling up a disk.

If there were a poll, I can certainly imagine people voting for having
valuable logging kept for review. That has been the policy for syslog
for years. I don't see why someone would want to suddenly start
throwing away valuable logs at reboot just because the logging backend
is now journald instead of syslog.

I agree that this should be done; however that trivial patch is not
quite enough, as one has to make sure the permissions on the directory
are correct and that one allows disabling that feature too, and preserve
the admin choice w.r.t. that on upgrades, and we do need flush the
journal from RAM to disk upon upgrades.

I will look into enabling that by default via config snippet / drop in.

@All

not a big deal to create /var/log/journal if a user want/need it; its
documented since the beginning. So why doing things complicated when the
actual default is light enough ?

@dino99. Because good defaults matter. Being safe by default is
important. Being secure by default is important.

The "Principle of least surprise" applies here:

"In general engineering design contexts, the principle can be taken to
mean that a component of a system should behave in a manner consistent
with how users of that component are likely to expect it to behave".

One reasonable expects their logs to saved through reboot, as system
logs have worked that way for the last couple of decades.

I didn't think to go create "/var/log/journal" because I trusted Ubuntu
to continue to be "safe by default" has it generally has been for years.

@dino99: I think the typical user won't realize, that the logs are being
thrown away, until they need a log from the previous boot. By then it is
too late to correct the configuration.

Why not set `Storage=persistent` in `/etc/systemd/journald.conf` instead
of creating the folder. That would ensure that the folder is created
with the right ownership and permissions.

@olberd: Yes, I as a "typical user" can confirm that. I just wanted to
get some log data from the previous boot and was really surprised to
find that only the current boot was available. I have changed the
setting now, but the data I wanted is lost forever.

Let's give this discussion another dimension. Non-persistent logging as
default made it impossible to debug a critical `fwupdate` bug where the
OS doesn't boot after a firmware update:
https://github.com/rhboot/fwupdate/issues/86

Please, please, just enable persistent logging by default. Systemd logs
a lot more than rsyslog and having at most 2x logs is a small price to
pay for the debug/support benefits.

In addition to Dimitri comments, my patch also would result in a much
larger journal then comparable rsyslog. I managed to get mine up to
multiple GBs which on a slow disk, appears to actually slow down
logging.

I started a policy discussion on ubuntu-devel about whether systemd
journal logging should be persistent by default:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2017-November/040031.html

I encourage to participate. Non-developers can still participant, but
posts will be moderated (that's how I was able to post in the first

Apologies I didn't post this in the bug, but this was discussed before -
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2017-January/039634.html
(crosses -devel and devel-discuss)

My understanding was we were just waiting on implementation details (how
much/long to store in the journal, how to preserve sysadmins option who
want to disable the journal, etc)

Still waiting for a "out-of-the-box" persistent journal rotation:
- day's log is added endlessly to the queue
- as the last day is added to the end of the journal, scrolling down takes age to get actual log
- journalctl point to /var/log/journal; might point to the /run/log/journal for quick access, or actual journalctl should use '-b' parameter by default

- everything into /etc/systemd/journald.conf is commented out
- '/usr/lib/systemd/journald.conf.d/*.conf' has not been created

Thanks Dimitri!

I see that this bug has open tasks for Xenial, Zesty and Artful- my
understanding it this would not be a change we would backport. Am I
wrong about that?

What??!!! Persistent logging does lot more that just logging. Do you
people even use sata hard disk? There are multiple reports (check
archlinux forums) that it is bad for sata. That is why it is set to auto
by default. The word "auto" exactly created for that purpose....when
there is both benefit ane cost with certain action. We don't want our
hard disk to die quickly becquse of we want to see some logs that we
don't understand any way,

** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+
+ * System logs are lost across reboots because they are not stored
+ persistently.
+
+ [Test Case]
+
+ * Fresh installations, or upgrades to this version of systemd, should create /var/log/journal and trigger automatic persistent logs.
+ * Users may choose to remove said directory, or disable persistent logging in /etc/systemd/journald.conf
+
+ [Regression Potential]
+
+ * Persistent logging by default will cause logs to be flushed from /run
+ to /var/log, meaning there will be less RAM used (/run is tmpfs backed),
+ but increased disk usage (in /var/log). The journald daemon has limits
+ set for logs, meaning they will be rotated and discarded and should not
+ cause out of disk-space errors.
+
+ [Other Info]
+
+ * Original bug report
+
After upgrading 14.04 -> 16.04, key services are now running on systemd
and using the systemd journal for logging. In 14.04, key system logs
like /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog were persistent, but after
the upgrade to 16.04 there has a been a regression of sorts: Logs sent
to systemd's journald are now being thrown away during reboots.

This behavior is controlled by the `Storage=` option in
`/etc/systemd/journald.conf`. The default setting is `Storage=auto`
which will persist logs in `/var/log/journal/`, *only if the directory
already exists*. But the directory was not created as part of the 14.04
-> 16.04 upgrade, so logging was being lost for a while before I
realized what was happening.

This issue could be solved by either creating /var/log/journal or
changing the default Storage behavior to `Storage=persistent`, which
would create the directory if need be.

## Related reference

- * `systemd` currently compounds the issue by having ["journal --disk-usage" report memory usage as disk usage](https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/4059), giving the impression that the disk is being used for logging when it isn't.
- * [User wonders where to find logs from previous boots, unaware that the logs were thrown away](http://askubuntu.com/questions/765315/how-to-find-previous-boot-log-after-ubuntu-16-04-restarts)
+  * `systemd` currently compounds the issue by having ["journal --disk-usage" report memory usage as disk usage](https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/4059), giving the impression that the disk is being used for logging when it isn't.

## Recommended fix

Restoring persistent logging as the default is recommended.

"The journald daemon has limits set for logs, meaning they will be rotated and discarded and should not cause out of disk-space errors."

What are they? AFAICT it only has limits on the number of files, but
not how big they can overall become.


I'm also thinking that the duplicate writing of logs could cause other regressions, one example being where high disk throughput is ongoing and many things being written to the logs. Thoughts?

The limits are documented in `man journald.conf`.

One of them is " SystemMaxUse=, ", which is based on disk usage, not
file size.

regressions, one example being where high disk throughput is ongoing and

Additional disk writing is somewhat mitigated by the general increase in
disk performance over time in new hardware

As one user found here, SSD is about 5x faster than HDD and the newer NVMe SSDs are about
5x faster than the older SSDs. A new NVMe SSD is about 25x faster than an HDD.

https://photographylife.com/nvme-vs-ssd-vs-hdd-performance

The idea here is to be "safe by default". People are welcome to
prioritize performance and reduce logging beyond the defaults.

The performance impact on disk throughput should not be significant,
as journald still throttles and caches the log messages before
flushing them to disk and still forwards them to rsyslog as it did
before. The performance impact depends on the workload, and there is a
reduction of runtime memory used as well, which helps with throughput
by increasing available io cache buffers.

Dimitri.

Sorry, yea, I meant our defaults, not the journal config options itself. SystemMaxUse= is unset in the config in bionic (although it's all commented out, but I believe that's supposed to indicate our defaults?)

Re:disk writing. I don't disagree, but if we are SRUing it we need to
consider that more. For 18.04 we can still decide to remove rsyslog to
reduce the impact, we can't do that for 17.10/16.04.

Current situation of non-persistent logs imho is critical bug. It has
a severe impact, data loss, on a large portion of Ubuntu users.

To reduce duplication, one of the suggestions was to still forward
messages to rsyslog (for forwarding) but do not store those that are
coming from journald on disk, as journald already has them one disk.

Alternative, is to switch to syslog-ng with journald module such that
it pulls in rich journal messages into syslog, and make journald stop
forwarding messages to syslog.

Another alternative is to drop rsyslog from default install, and make
journald be the default syslog provider on Ubuntu.

I am undecided on how to best implement de-duplication of a portion of
messages in Ubuntu going forward, but above are three technically
plausible paths to solve this.

Dimitri.

"The performance impact on disk throughput should not be significant..."
Understood, thanks! I just didn't see that mentioned in the SRU.

Re:dedup: I prefer the dropping rsyslog, but none of those are feasible
for existing releases, right?

What are the journal limits on Ubuntu by default?

upgraded in lxd container; correctly creates /var/log/journal, with
correct group/sticky permissions set.
