Re: [Fedora] Sendmail's 2GiB limit?



    I didn't say that it's Fedora's default rotation, did I?  I said WE
rotate once a month.  In other words, WE adjust our rotation
configuration to do it once a month, and WE keep 12 months worth of logs.

    However, this isn't about the rotation frequency.  I can hit 2GiB in
a week easily, but that's not the problem here.  This is about the
*limitation* that sysklogd has and the question as to WHY.  There's, in
my mind, absolutely no reason for this limitation, and yet it seems to
have escaped everyone, probably because everyone rotate every week.

If I follow this discussion:
http://www.mail-archive.com/devel kannel org/msg06223.html

you may be able to recompile sysklogd and have it pass the 2g limit.
It might be easier to move the rotation frequency back to one week,
and then glom the rotated files together once a month via cron.

If recompiling sysklogd is the answwer, a bug should propbably be filed?
