Log rotation failed - should I be concerned?


Active Member
Good morning!

My newly updated PBS 1.1-13 system encountered an error last night regarding log rotation. The root disk is 64GB with not much used, and I don't see any obvious issues.
2021-10-07T00:00:00-07:00: starting task log rotation
2021-10-07T00:00:00-07:00: task log archive was not rotated
2021-10-07T00:00:03-07:00: TASK ERROR: reopen commands failed, proxy: unable to parse parameters (expected json object)
; api: unable to parse parameters (expected json object)

Should I be concerned by this? How can I further investigate the issue? I've just updated from 1.1-5 I think, now its running 1.1-13.
Thanks so much!
