Description

Motivation

See #96551

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: The most verbose logging calls on active openQA instances like OSD have been reduced in verbosity

Suggestions

  • Call journalctl -f on osd and look for what appears to be repeated most often and either remove those calls or change to log_trace
  • Revisit previous tickets where we increased logging
  • Look for redundant messages in the sense that they never really change and aren't that useful
  • Focus especially on debug messages
  • Consider all services (also scheduler, web sockets, …)

It's effective on OSD. We still have some rather verbose messages but the journal goes back to at least 2022-01-23 so I guess we are ok for now.
