NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       rotatelogs - rotate Apache logs without having to kill the

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       rotatelogs logfile rotationtime [offset]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       rotatelogs is a simple program for use in conjunction with
       Apache's  piped  logfile  feature  which  can be used like

          TransferLog  "|   rotatelogs   /path/to/logs/access_log

       This creates the files /path/to/logs/access_log.nnnn where
       nnnn is the system time at which the log nominally  starts
       (this time will always be a multiple of the rotation time,
       so you can synchronize cron scripts with it).  At the  end
       of  each  rotation time (here after 24 hours) a new log is

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

              The path plus basename of the logfile.  If  logfile
              includes  any % characters, it is treated as a format
 string for strftime(3).  Otherwise, the  suffix
              .nnnn  is  automatically  added  and is the time at
              which the logfile was created.

              The rotation time in seconds.

       offset The number of minutes offset from UTC.  If omitted,
              zero  is  assumed and UTC is used.  For example, to
              use local time in the zone UTC -5 hours, specify  a
              value of -300 for this argument.
