I am using Zope 2.5.0 (binary release, python 2.1, win32-x86), and the
python 2.1.3 distribution of from python.org as a service on a Windows 2000
server.

I am looking for a solution to rotate zope log files on windows.

I just started writing a batch file to accomplish this, and it seems to work fairly well:

net stop ZOPE_INSTANCE_SERVICE_NAME

  FOR /f "tokens=6-8 delims=/ " %%G IN ('NET TIME \\%computername%') DO (
        SET _mm=%%G
        SET _dd=%%H
        SET _yy=%%I
 )
  FOR /f "tokens=1,2 delims=: " %%G IN ('time/t') DO (
        SET _hr=%%G
        SET _min=%%H
  )

ECHO Today is Year: [%_yy%] Month: [%_mm%] Day: [%_dd%]
ECHO The time is:   [%_hr%]:[%_min%]

REN "C:\Zope_2_8_1_instance\log\Z2.log" "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"

del Z2.log

rundll32.exe >C:\Zope_2_8_1_instance\log\Z2.log

net start Zope

net start ZOPE_INSTANCE_SERVICE_NAME

I am thinking of using windows scheduler to run this every night at midnight. But I wonder if anyone else worked on a similar solution and could pass along any advice.

Or, conversely, does anyone know how to configure Zope 2.5.0 to send information that would normally be saved to the Z2.log file to a syslog utility, (such as the Kwiki Syslog Daemon), found here:

Sincerely,
