Rotate log.nsf and/or domlog.nsf on a daily/weekly base

We would like to rotate log.nsf and/or domlog.nsf on a daily or weekly base like mailjournal.nsf or console.log on filesystem.

    The situation with domlog is even worse. We have configured archiving and storage of records for the last 3 days, but the database cannot be opened, because thousands of records are created every second. To view the data, you need to copy the database to local and open it, which takes 6 or more hours. How can we talk about operative analysis and problem solving?

    NSF is not intended for logging. One just need to admit it and give the opportunity to use other special modern bases instead.

    I agree. Log.nsf can grow to a point where it has serious performance impact, even with moderate log settings and retention settings, because it cannot be compressed or renamed at runtime.

    Currently a server downtime is required to compress it or to delete it/rename it (if for some reason one wants to or has to keep older log entries).

    To keep older logs without the log.nsf growing too big. It‘s slow to open sometimes even with the default 7 days retention because it‘s too big.

    What is the main purpose for that?
