cronolog

Welcome to cronolog.org, the home of the cronolog web log rotation program.

cronolog is a simple filter program that reads log file entries from standard input and writes each entry to the output file specified by a filename template and the current date and time. When the expanded filename changes, the current file is closed and a new one opened. cronolog is intended to be used in conjunction with a Web server, such as Apache, to split the access log into daily or monthly logs.

cronolog is not just limited to rotating web server log files. In fact a community radio station in Montreal, Quebec, (CKUT 90.3 FM) uses it as part of a realtime archive/logging system of the broadcasts using open-source software. [more info]

One user described it thus:

cronolog kicks ass in every conceivable way in which a utility like cronolog can kick ass.

News

2008-01-04: I have removed the wiki as it was just getting spammed and added a blog.

2007-01-31: The cronolog project page is now live on SourceForge, and there is a new mailing list (also hosted on SourceForge).

2007-01-29: I have registered cronolog as a project with SourceForge. This should be processed in the next couple of days and then I will set up mailing lists, etc. on the SF site.

2007-01-05: I have set up a wiki. No content yet ;-)

2004-11-16: added Matthew Grosso's 1.7.0-beta tarball (with the Jumbo Patch applied (see the patches page).

2004-09-06: the site now has a search facility (it uses ht://Dig).

2004-09-03: there is now an online archive of the mailing list.

2003-05-16: development of cronolog suffered a setback in February when I lost my hard disk and didn't have a recent backup of the cronolog sources or the web site sources (it is generated with Template Toolkit). I have now recovered these and to make a start on the next version I have added a patches page with patches that have been submitted over the last couple of years. These will most probably find their way into the next version of cronolog.
