Log File Rotation

Log files can be rotated manually at any time, or can be rotated automatically when the following events occur:

The start-time, start-day, and interval can have the following combinations:

The time-of-day takes precedence over the interval. For example, a log that is specified to be rotated at 3am and then every 10 hours is rotated at the following times: 03:00, 13:00, 23:00, and again at 03:00 (not 07:00).

If the log is configured for rotation on the 31st of the month but the month has fewer than 31 days, the log is rotated on the first day of the following month.
