Cronolog usage
The cronolog package consists of two programs: cronolog and cronosplit. There is a manual page for each in PDF format (cronolog and cronosplit)
The cronolog program
The cronolog program is normally invoked as a piped log filter program from Apache as specified in the configuration file. The direct program usage is:
/path/to/cronolog [OPTIONS] logfile-spec
The logfile-spec is a template that describes the names of the log files that should be written. Each character in the template represents a character in the expanded filename, except for date and time format specifiers, which are replaced by their expansion. Format specifiers consist of a "%" followed by a character as described in the table below. However it would normally be used in an Apache CustomLog directive as so:
CustomLog "|/path/to/cronolog [OPTIONS] logfile-spec" [format]
Note that the entire cronolog command line is enclosed within quotes and preceded by a vertical bar ("|"). The quotes cause Apache to regard the command line as a single argument and the presence of the vertical bar tells Apache that this is a piped log and that the command line is passed to the shell.
