The file got huge, couldnt open it to see what was in there. I overwrote it to watch it fill up again but now it’s not showing anything, yet my disk continues to fill up. I see several GB worth of stuff in /home/asterisk/.pm2 but cant actually get to it from the cli. Can I just delete that directory without breaking anything?
‘tail -f filename.ext’ will open it for reading and send the read stream to the console.
‘tail -100 filename.ext’ will print the last 100 lines. Buffering is minimal in both cases
Thanks. I see a bunch of these, and then it stopped about the time i overwrote the file.

Can I just overwrite this file too?
you would best ‘truncate’ it, not overwrite it, it’s a file handle thing.
I’ve been using echo -n > filename , might be saying the same thing here
Another option is truncate. truncate -s0 empties the file, but truncate -s just shortens (or extends) it.
hehe, ‘meaning’ the same thing but not actually ‘saying’ the same thing
(for brevity and levity
