This tool processes a log rotation outside of the scheduled log rotations configured through the Manage Log Rotation page. The tool stops all necessary services and restarts the services after the rotation is finished.

Example: Windows


Example: UNIX


This tool does not take any arguments. If logs are manually rotated using this tool, it will not interrupt the regular intervals. However, the logs that were rotated manually will not be included in the archive files created at the regularly scheduled rotation.

For example, if the log rotation is set at 30 days and the logs are manually rotated after 15 days, only the last 15 days of logs will be included in the archives at the next scheduled log rotation.

To learn more about managing logs, see Managing System Logs.
