Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.


Logrotate and Compressing only yesterdays files

Hello,

So I don't know if it's a win or not but on the bright side it didn't compress more than once on the down side it didn't compress at all.
Wondering if I should move the file to a new folder and compress it there instead.

FYI:

Code:
server:/etc# cd logrotate.d
server:/etc/logrotate.d# ls -l

	compress
	delaycompress
	sharedscripts
	postrotate
		/usr/lib/rsyslog/rsyslog-rotate
	endscript
}
server:/etc/logrotate.d#

Hope this helps.

delaycompress will not compress the first backup, but start compressing with the second backup if compress is used.
If globally (in /etc/logrotate.conf) there is delaycompress, then it can be inhibited in an individual rule file with nodelaycompress.
Some daemons do not like compression on their current/open log file(s), then delaycompress or copytruncate is necessary.
