yep, all versions just grow. i usually set things up so that files are moved to a subdirectory then conserver is sent a SIGUSR2 (if 7.2.5 or above, otherwise a SIGHUP). if anyone has a good methodology for trimming/rolling/size-restricting logfiles automatically, i'd love to hear about it. the key is it needs to be able to do things VERY quicky (as the server shouldn't really block waiting for a 500MB file get copied, compressed, or whatever) and a certain amount of data, ideally, would be retained so a reply could happen (if things roll automatically it could be quite intrusive at a major downtime, for example). so, those are the kinds of things i worry about. when it's controlled externally, folks can schedule things appropriately and just opening a bunch of files is (usually) very quick. but, like i said, ideas would be cool!
