    Default /var/log/zimbra-stats.log rotate 0

    i have seen that /var/log/zimbra-stats.log is growing bigger and bigger...
    in zimbra logrotate, it is
    Code:
    /var/log/zimbra-stats.log {
        daily
        missingok
        notifempty
        create 0644 zimbra zimbra
        postrotate
          killall -HUP syslogd 2> /dev/null || true
          su - zimbra -c "/opt/zimbra/bin/zmlogswatchctl restart" > /dev/null 2>&1 || true
        endscript
        rotate 0
    }
    why it's "rotate 0" ? is there a valid reason or it is a typo?

    'rotate 0' does not cause the script to not be rotated; instead it deletes it immediately. With the 'daily' directive at the top it means it is deleted daily. This log does get big quickly so it is deleted instead of saved.

    You can verify this by doing a 'less /var/log/zimbra-stats.log' and checking if the first entry is today's (or yesterdays if early in the morning) date.

    The dates showing in mine when i run that less query are from 9 months ago. So I am assuming its not rotating correctly? What should i check next?

    Make sure you have the logrotate software installed.
