Is Apache rotatelogs suitable for handling large volumes of

about 120MB in size per day.

Does somebody have similar experience with rotatelogs?

Absolutely-- rotatelogs did just fine with one of the sites I used to admin which was getting between 1 and 2.5 million hits a day, depending on the day of the week it was.

Storing the logfiles and doing analysis on them afterwards started getting pretty challenging, however: even doing reverse DNS lookups took a fair amount of work, and once you started piling up a year or so's worth, doing things like analog or webalyzer or Unison started taking close to 24-hours to finish running and produce a report.
