CentOS 7 - Updates for x86_64: system environment/base: logrotate

logrotate - Rotates, compresses, removes and mails system log files

License: GPL+
Vendor: CentOS
The logrotate utility is designed to simplify the administration of
log files on a system which generates a lot of log files.  Logrotate
allows for the automatic rotation compression, removal and mailing of
log files.  Logrotate can be set to handle a log file daily, weekly,
monthly or when the log file gets to a certain size.  Normally,
logrotate runs as a daily cron job.

Install the logrotate package if you need a utility to deal with the
log files on your system.
