Subject Re: Intermittent log file compression issue
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:39:32 GMT
Hi Remko.

Another symptom is that the log files are not cleared on the daily archive.

I.e I started the server on Friday morning and it logs to audit.log and it
archives daily.
The audit.log file now contains all the logs since Friday and it not
cleared.
The archived logs also contain all the logs to the point they were archived.

Regards,
Richard.
