General :: Logrotate Not Rotating Files With Date Extension?

Oct 25, 2010

I am trying to configure logrotate on APP/DB servers.As per my backup policy,logs will compress in daily basis and and will be moved to a Central storage device.

My tomcat generate several application logs with date extension as well as .log extension.For eg app.log,app.log.2010-10-23-14,catalina.out,catalina.2010-10-25.log etc.

Currently my tomcat logrotation /etc/logrote.d/
#cat /etc/logroate.d/tomcat/
/usr/local/tomcat/logs/*log {


But its rotating logs only with .log app.log.2010-10-23-14 (with date extension) is not rotating.If i put "*" instead of "*log",its rotating all files including rotated files. How can i rotate files which is having date extension.Also i dont want to keep rotated logs for more than 3 days.

General :: Logrotate - Purpose Of Rotate And Postrotate?

Jul 10, 2010

I have been trying out in learning with logrotate command and logrotate configuration file )logrotate.conf custom logfile for an process is 'test.log'


#cat /etc/logrotate.d/test
/var/log/test.log {
rotate 4


whenever the log file (test.log) exceeds 100M a new file will be created with the file name as test.'date'.'gz'(new file is created with a current date and in a compressed format of gz) and also with permission mentioned above). I really dont know what is the role of rotate( will this be carried on only for next 4times i mean upto 400MB; (4times*file reaches 100MB)? and also what could be the purpose of postrotate?

Server :: Logrotate For Logs That Change Filenames

Nov 26, 2010

Say that a certain server process generates log files and names them according to the current date; e.g.


i'd like to have logrotate compress the logs that are older than 3 days. Is this possible with logrotate, or do i just schedule a cron job to bzip everything under the folder older than 3 days?

Server :: Ubuntu 6.06 Syslog Crashes After Logrotate?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a postfix mailserver that works fine except for the logrotate.

mail.* -/var/log/mail.log
/var/log/mail.log {


So when cron does the logrotate, there is a new logfile but its empty. After i restart the syslogd it gets back to its normal logging.

What am i missing? All this works with CentOS, why is Ubuntu such a pain...

Debian Configuration :: Cron.daily Not Running Daily On Laptop?

I am running on a laptop and cron.daily is set to run at 0625 So I wonder what happens if my machine is not turned on at that time.. At that rate it could also be off for the other periods as well (weekly, monthly) Is there solution that will allow them to run once they are online after the appointed time? using a cron entry that runs every 15 or 5 or 1 minute.

Server :: Logrotate For HTTPD Breaks HTTP Sessions

Dec 22, 2010

We started hosting some very large content on our site, and the usage patterns in cacti have revealed that the HTTP sessions through our load-balancers drop off dramatically right at midnight.

The logrotate process runs right at midnight, and issues a reload command through the service tool (CentOS 5.5):
$ cat /etc/logrotate.d/httpd
/data/websites/logs/*_log /var/log/httpd/*log {
rotate 7
/sbin/service httpd reload > /dev/null 2>/dev/null || true

Looking at the init script reveals that the reload section is suppose to trigger a HUP of the httpd process:
reload() {
echo -n $"Reloading $prog: "
if ! LANG=$HTTPD_LANG $httpd $OPTIONS -t >&/dev/null; then
echo $"not reloading due to configuration syntax error"
failure $"not reloading $httpd due to configuration syntax error"
killproc -p ${pidfile} $httpd -HUP

In which, Apache should reload it's configuration and start the new logfile without breaking current sessions. However that clearly isn't what is going on. I'm tempted to edit the logrotate script to trigger a HUP directly by cat'ing the PID file directly. Is this normal behavior for Apache when signaled with a HUP?

Server :: Rotating Logs In Squid 2.7 Stable9

Aug 13, 2010

I've installed squid 2.7 stable9 in centos 5.4 x32 bit. I've installed and configured it successfully, its working fine. I want to clear few doubts, for that your kind help is needed. Parallely, I've configured another server using binary rpms with same squid version (2.7 stable9). I found that it creates a /etc/logrotate.d/squid for rotating log files (access.log, cache.log, store.log). Which is properly rotating log files using compress, dateext and size options (i manually added the size option).

But after compiling and installing from source code, its automatically not created. I want to rotate the log files in the same way as it is doing when i install using binary rpms. Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file (in source code installation scenario) logfile_rotate 10 Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file which is commented (in binary rpm installation scenario) #logfile_rotate 10 I want to rotate the log files by size (as I've more than 200 users, these logfiles size increasing very fast, ie. approx 80 MB per hour), with compress and dateext option.

Fedora :: Rotate The Pen When Rotate The Screen?

Sep 7, 2009

how can I rotate the pen when I rotate the screen, and I would like to share this knowledge to other people who may have the same problem I had.

I have a tablet fujitsu-siemens t5010 with installed the wacum packages by default, and the pen was working, but couldn't rotate with xsetwacom command.

In Fedora 10, most guides refer to the wacom device as "stylus" which doesn't work on Fedora 11. I run command " $ xinput list " and I found the line

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5) eraser"id=3[XExtensionKeyboard]

and some lines before there is:

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5)"id=2[XExtensionKeyboard]
^^^^^^ this is the name of the device xsetwacom command needs! ^^^^^^^

I wrote first the line with the eraser cause I suppose that even someone has different wacom model, the eraser will be easy to find by grep command ( $ xinput list | grep -i eraser ), and common in most configures.

now , the edited script I use becomes like this:

if [ $1 == 'normal' ]
xrandr -o normal
xsetwacom set "PnP Device (FUJ02e5)" rotate 0


It would be awesome if it chat could happened automatically , simply by rotating the screen, like it happens on Vista. I'll try to find out any solution and update this post if I make it !

CentOS 5 Server :: Rotating Named Logs Via Syslog.conf?

Mar 1, 2010

OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!

Here is the logging section of my named.conf

# pwd
# /var/named/chroot/etc

Fedora :: Weekly Raid-check Never Checks Md1?

Feb 21, 2011

I have three raid volumes, md0, md1, and md2. The weekly raid-check cron always causes md0 and md2 to get checked but never md1.


Volumes md0 and md1 are on the same 8 disks. Volume md0 is a small raid1 across all 8 disks for boot and md1 is a raid5 that occupies the rest of those 8 disks. Volume md2 is a raid5 on a separate set of 6 drives. When I check /var/log/messages* I see that every Sunday md0 and md2 get checked but md1 is never checked. However, when I run 99-raid-check manually, all three volumes get checked. There is clearly something different between how crond runs that script and how I run it, but I can't imagine what that would be.

General :: Logrotate Httpd Log Files ?

Jan 11, 2010

I need to logrotate logs in directories in /var/log/httpd/.

There are 4 directories in /var/log/httpd/... these directories are /var/log/httpd/access/ /var/log/httpd/debug/ /var/log/httpd/error/ /var/log/httpd/required/

Each of the access, required, error and debug directories have around 20 to 30 access log files of different locations for example:mumbai-access.log, pune-access.log etc..same is the case for 'error' dir 'required' dir and 'debug' dir in /var/log/httpd/

I need to clean up the logfiles in all the 4 directories access, error, debug and required...

I have made a custom logrotate file as follows:

Is the above config correct?

Am I missing something? Will this logrotate the files in /var/log/httpd/access, /var/log/httpd/error, /var/log/httpd/required and /var/log/httpd/error ?

Do i need to include following line in postrotate " /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/ 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true" ?

CentOS 5 :: Segmentation Faults With Yum, Logrotate, And Others?

Dec 4, 2010

Recently I noticed that on my Centos 5.4 system, yum no longer works and is giving segmentation faults. I can run "yum --help" and it works, but if I try to run something like "yum upgrade php" it will fault. I also noticed that other things are seg faulting as well, like /usr/sbin/logrotate and /usr/bin/certwatch.

I am guessing there is some sort of common library that needs fixing, but I have no idea what. I've read other posts about the yum segmentation fault and have tried various steps provided but so far no luck in getting it to work again. It used to work, and I rarely change this system so I'm not sure what could have caused it.
