Yep. Alternatively, check out RedHat's logrotate. It is far more flexible, yet less cryptic to configure. It also lets software packages (like httpd, squid, cupsd, etc) drop their own little logrotate config files into /etc/logrotate.d, hence eliminating the need for a package manager to mess with a master config file. The scheduling of log rotations is completely left out of logrotate, instead it is run via cron whenever desired. I'm not quite sure why it isn't mentioned on http://www.loganalysis.org/sections/rotation-tools/index.html Cheers Steffen.
