I happened to look at my system.log today and I discovered that it is full of what appears to be full HTML pages, put there by webfilterproxyd. Here is an example of what I mean:
It's obviously caused by the parental controls, presumably our child clicks a link to some non-whitelists websites. Disabling these controls is not an option.
I can't filter this out (e.g.
cat /var/log/system.log | grep -v "webfilterproxyd" | less) because all this HTML is on separate lines. This is making it very difficult to look through the log.
Worse still, it is so spammy that it is filled up my logs and rotating them out in a single day: for instance, at the moment there are 16 gzipped system.log files, all of which are around 3M compressed and which were created within a 15 minute period this morning. Obviously not very useful for reviewing for things like failed sshd attempts if logs are getting rotated out in such short order!
Why is this happening, and how do I make it stop?
