Here I just got home. Sorry for the inconvenience I might have caused.

Bernie, do you know which log was/is growing out of hand?

Here's a report on everything I know about the issue.
We've been experiencing some performance degradation and also some 
downtime in Sugar Network services (this is documented at 
http://tareas.somosazucar.org/hxp/issue71 ).
We've seen a burst in users since deployment OS images with Sugar 
Network features ( http://network.sugarlabs.org/stats-viewer/ growing 
pretty fast user_total).
There is a notification feature that is polling the sugar network node 
This was causing the allocation and exhaustion of resources (open 
files). Crashes got to a frequency of every hour or so.
It's code I don't understand really well, but I went ahead and patched 
the Sugar Network with: 
This made the SN much snappier and it stopped crashing. However logs 
were saving a traceback several times per second. I thought I had 
contained the log issue but apparently I missed some other logs (I 
guess apache logs but they seem clean now).

I took a glance at jita and could not find the growing log.

Let me know where I can help mitigation.
