Sometimes because of faulty logger implementations or a process which is running for a long time in Unix
Operating System, background console output file “nohup.out” continues to grow in size and finally we need
to restart the process to either remove this or truncate this.
The below command will empty the “nohup.out” file without impacting running process:
UNIX_SHELL$ > nohup.out
UNIX_SHELL$ cat /dev/null > nohup.out
