qsrotate(1) a log rotation tool (similar to Apache's rotatelogs).


qsrotate -o <file> [-s <sec> [-t <hours>]] [-f] [-z] [-g <num>] [-u <name>] [-p]


qsrotate reads from stdin (piped log) and writes the data to the provided file rotating the file after the specified time.


-o <file>
Output log file to write the data to (use an absolute path).
-s <sec>
Rotation interval in seconds, default are 86400 seconds.
-t <hours>
Offset to UTC (enables also DST support), default is 0.
-b <bytes>
File size limitation (default are 2147352576 bytes).
Forced log rotation even no data is written.
Compress (gzip) the rotated file.
-g <num>
Generations (number of files to keep).
-u <name>
Become another user, e.g. www-data.
Writes data also to stdout (for piped logging).


  TransferLog "|qsrotate -f -z -g 3 -o /dest/file -s 86400"

The name of the rotated file will be /dest/filee.YYYYmmddHHMMSS where YYYYmmddHHMMSS is the system time at which the data has been rotated.


Each qsrotate instance must use an individual file.
