I just installed MicroMPX on a Linux computer and normally applications log to something like /var/log/micrompx. However MicroMPX seems to log to the users home directory and write a new log file every time it's started.
There seems to be no command line start options to specify a logging directory or configuration file at all. Which is weird for a Linux application, but it's fine I guess. However the logging behavior is documented nowhere. Can anyone tell me if it rotates it's own logs and deletes old logs after some time, or do I need to set up log rotate and deletion rules for it?
Yes, it removes old log files, it has an internal parameter (LogRotationMaxTotalSizeMegaBytes, it's currently not accessible) that's set to 4 GB. When it exceeds that, old log files are removed.
We originally had it set to /var/log, but on some systems that directory wasn't writable.
