Log file Question:
The Docs say the following (1.9.18p3)
max log size (G)
This option (an integer in kilobytes) specifies the max
size the log file should grow to. Samba periodically
checks the size and if it is exceeded it will rename the
file, adding a .old extension.
A size of 0 means no limit.
Default: max log size = 5000
max log size = 1000
How often is periodically?
Also does samba keep the file marked as open that is logging to?
do I have to kill samba in order to rotate the logs?
I need to keep upwards of ten-weeks worth of logs and I have a good log
rotater for it but I need to know about this .old file issue and how it
