Package: tomcat8
Version: 8.0.39-1
Severity: minor


The default server.xml shipped with tomcat8 has an access log valve config as 

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" directory="logs"
        prefix="localhost_access_log" suffix=".txt"
        pattern="%h %l %u %t &quot;%r&quot; %s %b" />

So files are produced in /var/log/tomcat8 with filenames like:


However, the log rotation script /etc/cron.daily/tomcat8 has:


and so is looking for files which end .log.

This means the access logs are never rotated and just build up until the 
partition is full.

Either the rotation script needs to also match .txt files or the valve should 
be creating .log files.
