Please don't top-post on technical lists.
However, same reply applies to you. Check your log_level and
log_filters settings. I just installed fresh server and looking at the
libvirtd.conf, VDSM properly configured it to have also:
log_filters="1:libvirt 3:event 3:json 1:util 1:qemu"
where "3:event 3:json" gets rid of a lot unnecessary messages (but
beware, it depends on the order in which those directives are
specified). You can also have a look at what we discussed about in Bug
920614 , where you might find interesting settings for that as well.
There is also link to the Gerrit tracker, where the issue is tracked
 as well.
Logs should also be rotated. In case there is no logrotate daemon or no
rules for it, that may be another point of failure.
