    I was trying to avoid SOME of the zillion entries in /var/log/messages and I put in some suggested filters.
    for example /etc/rsyslog.d had ignore-session-slice.conf containing:
    if $programname == "systemd" and ($msg contains "Starting Session" or $msg contains "Started Session" or $msg contains "Created slice" or $msg contains "Starting user-" or $msg contains "Starting User Slice of" or $msg contains "Removed session" or $msg contains "Removed slice User Slice of" or $msg contains "Stopping User Slice of") then stop

    config line in rsyslog.conf:
    # Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
    # Don't log private authentication messages!
    *.warn;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

    but - I notice now that the ONLY lines in /var/log/messages come from pure-ftpd!
    logger SOME TEXT
    adds nothing to /var/log/messages

    systemctl status rsyslog gives us:
    ● rsyslog.service - System Logging Service
    Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rsyslog.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

    now I love a nice small messages file as much as even Th0m - but something seems to be wrong here!
    where are my messages going?
    I did move the files in rsyslog.d to a different folder and systemctl restart rsyslogd but I get no messages even though
    the filters are now removed!

    any ideas?
