Which are you using?  Log4j already has a RollingFileAppender (size or date
based, your choice) which rolls logs automatically.  Or, you can use
logrotate on linux.

Subject: Re: Catalina.out gets to big-> Server crashes


Hello,

sorry, I just clean forgot to tell the version its 5.5.9.

I discovered the tomcat-juli.jar in the bin directory 
so I suppose its in use. Although I never used it so far.

So the idea is to switch x4juli.jar and I get the same functionality as in
log4J? That's great because I'm using it to log my webapps.

So despite this option the only real solution would be to do
it with shell scripts in my linux environment?

cheers,
Pete
