[equinox-dev] Eclipse and the Mac System Log - Runaway CPU

Sorry if this is a really inappropriate message for this list, but I'm at my whit's end and I doubt my question will be answered on the newsgroup.

Basically, I'm seeing MEGABYTES of info logged from Eclipse. There's no errors, just reams and reams and reams of info regarding the libraries I'm using everything I runt junit tests or whatever. It's literally causing poor syslogd to chew up more than 1 CPU (and > 120 megabytes so far, after 1/2 hour) trying to digest this stuff.

So, the question is, how on earth do I stop this useless info from being logged to the system log? Is there some hidden flag I can turn on (please say yes) and/or modify which will stop it?

I think what happened is that with the latest (10.5.2) update to Leopard, syslog changes (some new db format or something) is now causing way more CPU usage than normal. So it could well be that Eclipse was spewing out this much info all along and I just never noticed it. I've completely reinstalled Eclipse from the latest download and nothing changed - still get periodic swarms of Eclipse spew.

Unfortunately, I'm noticing it now. With this happening all the time, it basically makes battery mode operation an impossibility.

Any help?  Or pointers?

Hopefully, I'm not abusing this list, but as I said I am extremely desperate here... Any help appreciated...

Sys info:

Mac OS X 10.5.2
Eclipse: Version: 3.3.1.1 Build id: M20071023-1652
