The Directory Server allows you to configure the log rotation policy for the server. When any rotation limit is reached, the Directory Server rotates the current log and starts a new log. If you create a new log publisher, you must configure at least one log rotation policy.

You can select the following properties:
  • Time Limit Rotation Policy. Rotates the log based on the length of time since the last rotation. Default implementations are provided for rotation every 24 hours and every 7 days.
  • Fixed Time Rotation Policy. Rotates the logs every day at a specified time (based on 24-hour time). The default time is 2359.
  • Size Limit Rotation Policy. Rotates the logs when the file reaches the maximum size for each log. The default size limit is 100 MB.
  • Never Rotate Policy. Used in a rare event that does not require log rotation.
