rotatelogs(8)			     System Manager's Manual			    rotatelogs(8)

NAME
       rotatelogs - rotate Apache logs without having to kill the server

SYNOPSIS
       rotatelogs logfile rotationtime [offset]

DESCRIPTION
       rotatelogs is a simple program for use in conjunction with Apache's piped logfile feature,
       which can be used like this:

       CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/logfile 86400" common

       This creates the files /var/logs/logfile.nnnn where nnnn is the system time at  which  the
       log nominally starts (this time will always be a multiple of the rotation time, so you can
       synchronize cron scripts with it).  At the end of each rotation time (here after 24 hours)
       a new log is started.

OPTIONS
       logfile
	      The path plus basename of the logfile.  If logfile includes any Otherwise, the suf-
	      fix .nnnnnnnnnn is automatically added and is the time in  seconds.   Both  formats
	      compute the start time from the beginning of the current period.

       rotationtime
	      The rotation time in seconds.

       offset The  number  of  minutes	offset	from UTC.  If omitted, zero is assumed and UTC is
	      used.  For example, to use local time in the zone UTC -5 hours, specify a value  of
	      -300 for this argument.

PORTABILITY
       The  following  logfile format string substitutions should be supported by all strftime(3)
       implementations, see the strftime(3) man page for library-specific extensions.

       %A     full weekday name (localized)

       %a     3-character weekday name (localized)

       %B     full month name (localized)

       %b     3-character month name (localized)

       %c     date and time (localized)

       %d     2-digit day of month

       %H     2-digit hour (24 hour clock)

       %I     2-digit hour (12 hour clock)

       %j     3-digit day of year

       %M     2-digit minute

       %m     2-digit month

       %p     am/pm of 12 hour clock (localized)

       %S     2-digit second

       %U     2-digit week of year (Sunday first day of week)

       %W     2-digit week of year (Monday first day of week)

       %w     1-digit weekday (Sunday first day of week)

       %X     time (localized)

       %x     date (localized)

       %Y     4-digit year

       %y     2-digit year
