A python logrotater

Project description

This library is a simple logrotater (or file rotater). Simply pass in the path to the main logfile and this library will rotate all the logs by an increment of 1.


import logrotater

rotater = logrotater.LogRotate(prefix=’/home/kyle/p4.log’, verbose=True)


The prefix path should be the path of the main logfile without the .N extension. The previous example would rotate /home/kyle/p4.log.N to /home/kyle/p4.log.N+1, move /home/kyle/p4.log to /home/kyle/p4.log.1 and create a new empty /home/kyle/p4.log
