NAME

Log::Log4perl::Appender::File::FixedSize - Log::Log4perl appender which creates files limited in size

VERSION

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

This module allows you to create log files with a limited size. Once the file reaches the size limit it starts to overwrite the old content with the new one in the same order it was added.

Example:

    use Log::Log4perl::Appender::File::FixedSize;

    my $file = Log::Log4perl::Appender::File::FixedSize->new(
                        filename => '/tmp/log.txt',
                        size     => '10Mb',
    );
    ...
    
    $file->log(message => 'Hello world');

Log::Log4perl config

Here is an example how you can use this module with Log::Log4perl

        log4perl.rootLogger=DEBUG, test
    
        log4perl.appender.test=Log::Log4perl::Appender::File::FixedSize
        log4perl.appender.test.filename=test.log
        log4perl.appender.test.mode=append
        log4perl.appender.test.size=1M
    
        log4perl.appender.test.layout=PatternLayout
        log4perl.appender.test.layout.ConversionPattern=[%r] %F %L %c - %m%n

Basically it's the same config as for Log::Log4perl::Appender::File with an extra paramater : size
