NAME
     rotatelogs - rotate Apache logs without having to  kill  the
     server

SYNOPSIS
     rotatelogs logfile rotationtime

DESCRIPTION
     rotatelogs is a simple program for use in  conjunction  with
     Apache's piped logfile feature which can be used like this:

        TransferLog "|rotatelogs /path/to/logs/access_log 86400"

     This creates the files  /path/to/logs/access_log.nnnn  where
     nnnn  is  the  system time at which the log nominally starts
     (this time will always be a multiple of the  rotation  time,
     so you can synchronize cron scripts with it).  At the end of
     each rotation time (here  after  24  hours)  a  new  log  is
     started.

OPTIONS
     logfile
          The path plus basename of the logfile. The suffix .nnnn
          is automatically added.

     rotationtime
          The rotation time in seconds.
