Hello, If I have radiator logging detail to /some/detail, and I want to do something like this on the first or second day of each month: mv /some/detail /some/tmp process /some/tmp and extract last month's records rewrite /some/tmp to contain only this month's records cat /some/tmp /some/detail > /some/detail Does radiator use flock locking? Will I lose data doing this? What about if I just flock /some/detail and process it in place and rewrite it to contain only this months records, will I lose data then? Will radiator buffer any accounting records while /some/detail is locked? -- Elliot ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) "The box said 'Requires Windows 95, NT, or better,' so I installed FreeBSD." ÿ To unsubscribe, email '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' with 'unsubscribe radiator' in the body of the message.
