  • Good, but doesn't provide a "real-time" gaurd.

  • I use this on quite a few log scripts, but found it failed on windows boxes that contain spaces in the path name. A quick change to the code solved it: Find line 356 in pyrotate.py change: cmd = "%s %s %s" % (compress, curr_file_arc, curr_file) to cmd = "%s \"%s\" \"%s\"" % (compress, curr_file_arc, curr_file) This adds the quotes to the cmd line command and allows any file name/ folder path combination. Other than that its a spot on script :) Thanks

  • We use this in Windows mostly, as in Linux too :)
