When I'm running a long job of any kind, I typically run it inside both
tmux, and also:
script logs all console output to a text file, so you can look at it later.
When I do this in combination with using the
--progress flag, it results in massive log files (often 100s of MB) due to the fact that the progress text updates more than once a second. And these huge logs usually make it into my backup systems before I get a chance to delete/move them.
Is there any way to change the update frequency/interval of the
e.g. For these long running jobs, I'd be happy for it to only update the status every 60 seconds or so. This would let me see the progress (which I still want to see), but without creating the huge
script files. Also less importantly, probably use a bit less resources on the system in general (probably negligible, but doesn't hurt for low power systems).
