By default, rippled seems to log at the NFO level, which spits out many megabytes of log files each day. How do I reduce this level? According to the Ripple wiki, we can edit pass arguments to rippled when starting it, or edit the configuration file via [rpc_startup], but neither of these methods had any effect for me (on v0.23.0).

You can put the following in your rippled.cfg file:

{ "command" : "log_level", "severity" : "error" }
  • Thanks! I see that the wiki was updated with the correct severities.
