The logrotate utility is designed to simplify the administration
of log files on a system which generates a lot of log files.
Logrotate allows for the automatic rotation compression, removal
and mailing of log files.  Logrotate can be set to handle a log
file daily, weekly, monthly or when the log file gets to a certain
size.  Normally, logrotate runs as a daily cron job.
