    Default YYYY_MM_DD.trace.log and access_log.YYYY-MM-DD

    Hi everybody, we have discovered that our /opt/zimbra/log folder is weighted by two log files:


    That are created every day, but not compressed, so about 280Mb are occupied every day.
    There is a bug report about this ( ), that says that those files are created by jetty and not affected by logrotate (in fact there are no references to those log files in /etc/logrotate.d/zimbra) but their creation is ruled by /opt/zimbra/jetty/etc/jetty.xml, that does not specify compression or rotation. Does anybody know how to normally rotate those logs? An user on that bug reporting just suggests to add two crontab rules as a workaround.

    Has anyone tried to edit jetty.xml file?

    Maybe <Set name="extended"> could be set to "false"
    In there is also

    that maybe can be reduced to WARN...
