My question is how can I make sure the logs are rotated when they grow too large AND they are also rotated at a specified point in time (start of a new month). I am reading man newsyslog.conf and it says: If the when field contains an asterisk (`*'), log rotation will solely depend on the contents of the size field. To me it seems to say that when it is not an asterisk (i.e. when I enter a date), the log rotation is not based solely on size factor, which in other words should mean it is also based on time?
I haven't looked closely at newsyslog in awhile. I started to write up a reply to you, but in a quick test newsyslog does not seem to be working the way that I expected it to work. It might just be that I was too tired to think straight when I was testing. I'll try to get back to this sometime later today. -- Garance Alistair Drosehn = [EMAIL PROTECTED] Senior Systems Programmer or [EMAIL PROTECTED] Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Troy, NY; USA _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
