GNU Rot[t]log
log management program

GNU Rot[t]log is a log management program that rotates, compresses, archives, modifies, and emails system and program logs. It has similar syntax to logrotate.

GNU Rot[t]log is designed to simplify administration of systems that generate large numbers of log files. It allows automatic rotation, compression, and archiving of logs. It also mails reports to the system administrator. Each log file may be handled daily, weekly, monthly, in user-defined days, or when it becomes too large.
