Logrotator

Logrotator

Log rotation in pure javascript.

Log rotation is performed based on the size of the file. If the file size reaches the designated limit, rotation takes place.

Rotation is based on copying the file contents and then truncating the file size to 0. This way we avoid file renaming problems where programs are not always prepared to handle a log file being renamed.

Usage

var logrotate = require('logrotator');
 
// use the global rotator
var rotator = logrotate.rotator;
 
// or create a new instance
// var rotator = logrotate.create();
 
// check file rotation every 5 minutes, and rotate the file if its size exceeds 10 mb.
// keep only 3 rotated files and compress (gzip) them.
rotator.register('/var/log/myfile.log', {schedule: '5m', size: '10m', compress: true, count: 3});
 
rotator.on('error', function(err) {
  console.log('oops, an error occured!');
});
 
// 'rotate' event is invoked whenever a registered file gets rotated
rotator.on('rotate', function(file) {
  console.log('file ' + file + ' was rotated!');
});
