    Use GlusterFS on "var/www" and logs has generated a very large data traffic between my servers.

    I wonder if it is to configure the logs directory of sites permanently, or even disable.

    Have you tried adding the nginx Directives did not work.

    Logs are not stored in /var/www, so there is no problem at all.

    That's the problem in nginx vhost, this:

    "error_log /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/;
    access_log /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/ combined;"

    But if you look at the server:

    These are not in /var/www, they just appear to be there so that clients can view them from their ssh accounts. The log folder of a site is a bind mount to /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/domain.tld/ (see /etc/fstab). So the files that appear to be there are indeed in /var/log and not /var/www and there is no log traffic on your /var/www glusterfs volume.

    I use ISPConfig to take care of institutional sites of the company, not the need to have the log to see users, is to disable?

    No, you cant disable that and like I pointed out, it is not adding up to the traffic on your glusterfs share. its basiacally a symlink on filesystem level.

    You're right about the / etc / fstab, it mounts really one unit.
    There is no way to disable this?

    Because looking at the log I see Gluster the transfer of such data in the network.

    You can umount the bind-mounts and remove the entries from fstab.
