May 01, 2014Yes, there are options that control that.
In the settings.ini file for each backup job there are two lines -
conf.log_rotate_size - the maximum size of the log file
conf.log_rotate_count - how many archived copies of the log to keep
You start with just backup.log. When it grows to conf.log_rotate_size, it is moved to backup.0.log as soon as the backup is idle, and a new backup.log is started. When new .log grows to the threshold, the process is repeated, i.e. backup.0.log is moved to backup.1.log, backup.log - to backup.0.log and new backup.log is started. Conventionally, this is called "log rotation".
Defaults are 16 MB for size and 1 for rotation count (meaning that there'll be .log and .0.log only). Rotation count cannot be less than 1.
As of Release 73 Revision 6 it is now possible to rotate the logs on schedule, e.g. every day or every week. This is controlled by the following two settings.ini entries -
log_rotate_intvl - the rotation interval
log_rotate_first - time of the first rotation (hint: may be in the future)
The interval is in "
2 for microseconds,
3 for milliseconds,
4 for seconds,
5 for minutes,
6 for hours,
7 for days,
8 for weeks
So 3:45 is "45 milliseconds" and "4:5" is "5 seconds".
If you are going to change these values, make sure to exit the app first, then edit and then start the app again. Otherwise your changes will be overwritten by the app.
