Subject/proc/kmsg memory usage ?

I am hoping someone here can point me towards the right documentation / web

I want to find out what happens to kernel messages in /proc/kmsg if they are
not read.

Are they cleared after a specified amount of time (eg every 24 hours) ?
Are they cleared when they occupy a maximum size ?
If they are not read will the memory they occupy grow indefinately ?
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to
More majordomo info at
