Log rotate software for HP 11.11

I have few HP UX 11.11 servers build by some other team. I didn’t see any logroation software installed on these systems. Checked adm & root user crontabs, also checked for logroate software.

I would like to get some advice before deciding some solution.

Is there any other place I need to check for log rotate software? What kind of solutions you’re using for HP UNIX.

What are the log files do you rotate ?
Thanks

Shalom,

Always go depot when you can.

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/logrotate-2.5/

You can rotate any log files you desire with logrotate, you merely have to look at the human readable configuration files after installation.
