How to fix /var/log/maillog log file that stuck writing

If the /var/log/maillog file is stuck writing, restarting the rsyslog service may help in resolving the issue.

service rsyslog restart

However, it is important to understand the potential impact of restarting the rsyslog service, as it can affect the logging for other services running on the server.

Before restarting the rsyslog service, you can check the current status of the service by running the command:

systemctl status rsyslog

If the status shows that the service is not running, you can try starting it by running the command:

systemctl start rsyslog

If the service is already running and restarting it doesn’t resolve the issue with /var/log/maillog, you may need to investigate further to determine the root cause of the problem.

It is also a good practice to backup important log files before making any changes to the system.
