My logadm.conf is below. Is there a way to match a log file that appends the time/date stamp after the log file? Also, a 0 is being appended onto the files I'm compressing and having rotated. Is there a way to fix that?

Does anyone know what package logadm is part of? It's not on my Solaris 9 machine, I presume because I only have a core installation. But I'd like to ad it. Any help would be appreciated. (1 Reply)

Does anyone know how the Solaris upgrade will handle... (1 Reply)

logadm.conf - configuration file for logadm command
/etc/logadm.conf is the default configuration file for the log management tool logadm(1M). Comments are allowed using the pound character
(#) and extend to the end of line. Each non-comment line has the form:
where logname is the name of the entry and options are the default command line options for the logadm command. The name of the entry may
be the same as the name of the log file, or a log file name may be given in the options section of the entry. Long lines may be folded
using a backslash followed by a newline to continue an entry on the next line. Single or double quotes may be used to protect spaces or
alternate-style quotes in strings.
The preferred method for changing /etc/logadm.conf is to use the -V, -w, and -r options to the logadm(1M) command, which allow you to
lookup an entry, write an entry, or remove an entry from /etc/logadm.conf.
A full description of how and when /etc/logadm.conf is used and sample entries are found in logadm(1M).
