MySQL™ Cluster Manager 1.4.8 User Manual

4.2.4 The rotate log Command

rotate log [{--hosts=|-h }host_list] [site_name]


Rotate mcmd logs for the connected MySQL Cluster Manager agent, for agents running on certain hosts, or for agents on all hosts in a management site.

For example, to rotate logs for the agent to which the client session is connected:

mcm> rotate log;
| Command result           |
| Log rotated successfully |
1 row in set (0.03 sec)

A new log file, with an underscore and then a timestamp inserted into its file name before the file extension, is created as a result:

-rw-r-----   1 mcmd cluster    74265 Jul 15 22:45 mcmd.log
-rw-r-----   1 mcmd cluster  1197573 Jul 15 22:45 mcmd_2017-07-15T22-45-28.log


For MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.4 and earlier, the new file name is in the format of old_filename.timestamp, which will be mcmd.log.2017-07-15T22-45-28 for the example above.

To rotate logs for agents on specific hosts like nanna12 and nanna13, use the --hosts option (or its short form -h):

mcm> rotate log --hosts=nanna12,nanna13 mysite;

To rotate logs on all agents in the management site mysite:

mcm> rotate log mysite;
