Issue with Logrot script

Unanswered Question

I was noticing that the log files were growing beyond the size defined even tho the job rotation schedule was set to run daily. When I manually run the job from cli I get the following messages:

However when I run logrog.pl -c the configuration is set to the following:

The conf file has the same settings so I'm not sure what the problem is... Any thoughts?


TIA,

These messages indicate that none of the log files configured are big enough for rotation (and most are 0 bytes or don't exist).


If you think this is an error, please post the output of a DIR showing the file size of one of the files not being rotated.

Volume in drive D is Data

Volume Serial Number is C894-61EE

Logrot appears to be correct. Your syslog.log is ~ 432 MB, but the configured logrot size is 1 GB. The same 1 GB size is also configured for ConfigMgmtServer.log and EPMServer.log.


The logrot file sizes are specified in kilobytes.
