Continuous "Connection reset by peer" log messages
I'm running pipewire 0.3.33 as a PulseAudio replacement. I use the i3 window manager with i3blocks which runs ponymix (https://github.com/falconindy/ponymix) periodically to get/set the current volume, change profiles, etc.
I'm constantly seeing pipewire complain about "Connection reset by peer" like the following multiple times per minute in the systemd journal:
Aug 10 07:13:49 eric-thinkpad-home pipewire: connection 0x55ada7447fd0: could not recvmsg on fd:99: Connection reset by peer Aug 10 07:13:49 eric-thinkpad-home pipewire: protocol-native 0x55ada72ef620: client 0x55ada7603230 error -104 (Connection reset by peer)
When I check with pw-mon, I see this is due to ponymix starting, retrieving the current volume through the PulseAudio interface and terminating.
I've tried copying
$HOME/.config/pipewire and modifying log.level to level 1 or 0 but it has no effect. Is there any way to suppress these messages?
It's not very helpful to know that a transient program like ponymix has terminated and torn down the connection it's using on its fd when that is the expected behavior.
