This module defines a log handler for text logs that rotate when they get to be a user-defined size. This is similar to the behavior of many UNIX standard log files. See logging logger, for more information in general on log handlers.
This is a log handler which writes text logs that rotate when they reach a configurable size limit.
Keywords recognized by
<rotating-log> on creation are:
This is the number of log files you want the logger to use. Default is 4.
This is the size, in bytes, a log file must get before the logs get rotated. Default is 1MB (104876 bytes).
This is the base of the log file name. Default is ``logfile''. Numbers will be appended to the file name representing the log number. The newest log file is always ``NAME.1''.
Allows the user to provide a function to use as the log formatter for this handler. See logging logger <log-handler>, for details.
Example of creating a
(make <rotating-log> #:num-files 3 #:size-limit 1024 #:file-name "test-log-file"))
