There are potential performance issues. I believe that appending to a file becomes more expensive when a file gets very large (which is obviously the scenario with log files) Also, at rotation time, if you're compressing those logs it can be a pretty big load to compress 145M. If you're not compressing and not moving the files to another partition when you rotate them, then this part probably isn't an issue. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
