1. Standard Tomcat scripts neither rotate nor truncate the file. So
what is your question?  Are you asking how to truncate a file on a
Unix system?

2. Do not write anything to the Console (and configure your logging to
log nothing to the Console).
Then there will be no need to bother with an empty catalina.out file.
