With that many vhosts, you shouldn't keep a separate log file open for each,
due to the enormuos overhead. I suggest you log all (or most) activity to
one or a few log files, and find, or write, a program that frequently split
them on a vhost basis. I know that such utilities are in existens and been
discussed around here, but I have not yet felt the need (like you now) to
implement such solution myself. Perhaps some nice fellow around would point
you to information about this.
