Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The new Event Console global option Syslog-like message logging will enable logging of all incoming events into logfiles that have syslog format. These files will be stored below var/mkeventd/messages and will be named with the same scheme as the history logfiles. They will adopt the same rotation principle as the history files.

If you are using Check_MK in a non-OMD environment and enable this option then please make sure that you have some logrotate configuration or similar for deleting outdated files.

If you are using OMD then consider enabling the global Diskspace Cleanup.
