    Hi
    My /var/log/syslog is flooded with notices of „Starting session c### of user pi“. There are two of these every second and they go on for thousands and thousands.
    My /var/log/auth.log shows that (most?) sessions are closed immediately, with notices of „Session closed“ and „Removed session…)
    What do you think is causing this frivolous behaviour?

    I know it is not a cron job, as I have identified those in the logs. They are functioning as expected.
    I know I can suppress the output by changing the LogLevel in system.conf. Or by routing the output to > /dev/null.
    But I’d rather know why all those pointless sessions are being started. I hate to see resources used for no purpose.
    Thanks for your help,
    Scott
    (I’m running a RPi 3B, Raspian 8 jessie, Kernel Linux 4.19.102-v7+)
