Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3910) Automatically rotate .out/.err files instead of overwriting
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2015 16:38:03 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3910:

             Summary: Automatically rotate .out/.err files instead of overwriting
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3910
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: scripts
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.8.0

I was just bit by this again and am tired of dealing with old .out and .err files being overwritten
when a process is restarted.

Assume the master falls over because of an OOME. The log file may not have any reference to
this exception depending on where the OOME was thrown from. Only the .err or .out files will
have the file. Someone comes along and restarts the server process (trying to help) and suddenly
the root cause of why the process fell over in the first place is gone.

It is trivial to rotate the files and keep a certain number of them present.
