Some ESB servers at work produce log files for each day, and they can grow quite large. In addition the log directory becomes annoyingly full which makes it a bit “blah” to grep for recent stuff. So I figured I could save some space by compressing them.
Decided to experiment a bit and created a simple little script to archive the log files for certain months and figured I might as well share it. Especially since it might be handy to learn from later when I’ve forgotten how I did it 😛
