Subject logrotate and tomcat 3.3/4.0/4.1
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2002 15:47:11 GMT
Hi to all,

Did there is plan to help implement logrotate
for Tomcat 3.3/4.0/4.1 ?

On production the logs could became very important
after weeks of use and should be cleanup.

The usual way under Unix is to use logrotate which
generally send a KILL -HUP/USR1 to the process which in
turn close its open logs files, and create new one.

The logrotate daemon then do the cleanup, renaming,
compression and so on.

What's the perspective for tomcat's ?

- Use log4j in cycle mode and avoid use
  of System.out / System.err ?

- Team up with jakarta-service to be able to 
  catch up the signal and do what's needed ?
