How to add rotatezlogs in your buildout

iw.rotatezlogs is a very useful package made by Gilles Lenfant to rotate log file in Zope. This is quite useful to make sure they don't get huge.

I have made the necessary changes in plone.recipe.zope2instance and plone.recipe.zope2zeoserver to make it available in a buildout environment. Since those changes are now released, here's the way to add the log rotator in your buildout if you wish to use it:
[buildout]

...



[instance]



...



event-log-custom =

    %import iw.rotatezlogs

    <rotatelogfile>

        path ${buildout:folder}/var/log/event.log

        max-bytes 1MB

        backup-count 5

    </rotatelogfile>



access-log-custom =

    %import iw.rotatezlogs

    <rotatelogfile>

        path ${buildout:folder}/var/log/instance-Z2.log

        max-bytes 1MB

        backup-count 5

    </rotatelogfile>



eggs =

    ...

    iw.rotatezlogs



[zeo]



...



zeo-log-custom =

    %import iw.rotatezlogs

    <rotatelogfile>

        path ${buildout:folder}/var/log/zeoserver.log

        max-bytes 1MB

        backup-count 5

    </rotatelogfile>



eggs =

    ...

    iw.rotatezlogs

The package is added in the eggs section to make sure the recipes adds it in the Python path when the script (zope or zeo) is loaded.

Gilles told us that the rotator will be integrated in ZConfig itself sometimes, so it will be even simpler to use.
