Huge .xsession-errors file?

Is there a way to prevent CLion from logging errors to .xsession-errors on Linux?

My CLion seems to constantly throw a certain exception internally at a very high frequency (Yes, I've already reported the exception.) It doesn't actually seem to impact my work, except that on every exception, it logs to ~/.xsession-errors, which quickly grows to multiple gigabytes and fills its partion. (I keep /home on a seperate partition.)

I'm already alerted to the exception via the in-IDE notifications.

So, is there a way to switch off the logging to .xsession-errors?

Josh, try to remove <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE-WARN"/> from bin/log.xml.

That appears to have done the trick. Thanks!

Hi Anastasia, I had the same problem here (the xsession errors filled the server of the entire department creating a lot of problems) I can't find this line <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE-WARN"/> anymore. I am usyng Pycharm Professional Edition 2020.1.2

Bruno,

I would recommend you submitting a bug report to the PyCharm tracker. We'll investigate and likely ask for some additional details. Thanks
