Logrotate for compressed files

Hey all, Beyond the standard setup for logrotate (which really only rotates non-compressed logs, or compresses them), just curious if anyone has a config file/script (or a logrotate entry) that would auto-remove compressed log files instead of having to manually delete them. BTW - this would be for ...

Re: Rotate compressed log files ?

Thanks TreverH,

My bad on one thing (just found this out from the team). It is CentOS, but it's XenServer CentOS, so there is no 'glusterfs' file in this case. Either way, same rules apply for logrotate, so still think we're on the right track :)

Cheers

Re: Rotate compressed log files ?

Hey aks, We do have the compress option commented out, so the files are being compressed with the '.gz' extension, but that isn't the issue (or what we're asking). It's the compressed files that we're trying to rotate so that we only have a max of 20 of them (i.e. using the 'messages' logs as an exa...

Re: Rotate compressed log files ?

Thanks TrevorH, That fits what we've researched, where the biggest note with the first two entries, namely, how often it rotates (ours is set to 'weekly'), and how many (ours is set to 'rotate 2'), however, we did read this note in another post... rotate 2 only handles 2 files (i.e., .1.gz and .2.gz...

Rotate compressed log files ?

Hey all, Not a complete newb with Linux, but did have a question about rotating archived (i.e. .gz extension) log files. From tons of research through documentation, posts, Google, etc. (and trial and error), came to the newb understanding that 'logrotate' only deals with the actual .log files (incl...

Re: CentOS 7 with VirtualBox

Not sure if anyone here ran into this, but I'm testing the 'minimal' install of CentOS 7 with the 'Compatibility Libraries' and 'Development Tools' checked during the initial installation process, then after install, used the steps in this post (which were awesome BTW - really saved me) for the Gues...

Re: CentOS Basic Server screen resolution - VMware

Hey InitOrNot, Wanted to say thanks much for your reply. Freely admit we're not Linux guru's by any means, so your clear concise explanation was awesome. We've been researching your below to better understand it, so you definitely helped with giving us the leg up with it (why I personally love the L...

Re: CentOS Basic Server screen resolution - VMware

So... Based on no replies to this post (and mostly because I think I know why?), I believe the obvious escaped at the time in that we HAD said we were only using the VM with a CLI, so if we're not using a GUI, then it stands to reason that even with VMware Tools installed, you would need to enter sp...

Re: CentOS Basic Server screen resolution - VMware

P.S. CentOS is 64bit with kernel 2.6.32-573 (only kernel installed), vSphere Client is ver. 6, we can build the VM with VM versions 7 - 11 (11 was just the default when we built it). if we think of any other info, will post, but if any other info needed, just ask :D
