Subject rotatelogz - gzipping rotatelogs variant without APR
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2007 13:18:01 GMT

I have a setup where logfiles etc. are periodically transferred
(rsynced) over a network-link at runtime, and disk space as well as
transfer time/bandwidth are relevant.

I didn't find a gzipping filter for APR, and didn't want to implement
yet another specialized gzip-implementation like mod_deflate for it, so
I took rotatelogs and converted it to use zlib, stripping some unneeded
and (in this setup) hard-to-support functionality as well.

It might be useful to someone else, so please find it attached for
inclusion. I hereby place it under the Apache License 2.0 and transfer
all relevant rights to the Apache Software Foundation.

Best regards,
