    I really like having my Informix log in separate files for each day, like this:

     

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix   2407 Mar 19 23:00 online-21-03-19.log

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix   2408 Mar 20 23:00 online-21-03-20.log

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix   2688 Mar 21 23:00 online-21-03-21.log

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix   2406 Mar 22 23:00 online-21-03-22.log

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix   4527 Mar 23 23:00 online-21-03-23.log

    -rw-rw-r--.  1 informix informix  10436 Mar 24 16:56 online-21-03-24.log

     

    I accomplish this with the following lines, which I have in a shell script that I named "change_MSGPATH.sh"

     

    #!/bin/sh

    . /etc/profile

     

    # Give the Informix log a new name based on today's date.

    # This script runs just after midnight every night.

     

    dateinfo=`date +"%y-%m-%d"`

    onmode -wf MSGPATH=$INFORMIXDIR/online-$dateinfo.log

     

     

     

    The cron job that runs this shell script:

    1 0 * * * /home/informix/shells/change_MSGPATH.sh  > /dev/null 2>&1

    Great post and sharing!

    For what it's worth, there is a Task Manager task, "online_log_rotate", that does this for you and you can set the frequency of the message log change and the maximum number of history logs to keep before deleting older ones.

    Neat but you can do the same thing with logrotate

    Cheers
