Can someone tell me what the difference is between these 2 settings? The
seem to be saying the same thing.
I use rotate 7 on my logs, but the old rotated logs don't go away after 7
days. Maybe I need to use maxage.
I use SuSE 8.2 This is my syslog settings file.
/var/log/warn /var/log/messages /var/log/allmessages /var/log/localmessages
create 640 root root
Remove rotated logs older than <count> days. The age is only
checked if the logfile is to be rotated. The files are mailed to the
address if maillast and mail are configured.
Log files are rotated <count> times before being removed or
mailed to the address specified in a mail directive. If count is 0, old
are removed rather then rotated.
