rotatelogs2




SYNOPSIS

       rotatelogs  logfile  [  rotationtime [ offset ]] | [ file­
       sizeM ]


SUMMARY

       rotatelogs is a simple program for use in conjunction with
       Apache's piped logfile feature. For example:

            CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/logfile 86400" common

       This  creates  the files /var/logs/logfile.nnnn where nnnn
       is the system time at which the log nominally starts (this
       time  will  always  be a multiple of the rotation time, so
       you can synchronize cron scripts with it). At the  end  of
       each  rota-  tion  time (here after 24 hours) a new log is
       started.

            CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/logfile 5M" common

       This configuration will rotate  the  logfile  whenever  it
       reaches a size of 5 megabytes.


OPTIONS

              logfile
                     The  path  plus  basename of the logfile. If
                     logfile includes any '%' characters,  it  is
                     treated  as a format string for strftime(3).
                     Otherwise, the suffix .nnnnnnnnnn  is  auto­
                     matically  added and is the time in seconds.
                     Both formats compute the start time from the
                     beginning of the current period.

              rotationtime
                     The  time between log file rotations in sec­
                     onds.

              offset The number of minutes offset  from  UTC.  If
                     omitted,  zero  is  assumed and UTC is used.
                     For example, to use local time in  the  zone
                     UTC  -5  hours,  specify a value of -300 for
                     this argument.
