The logrotate utility does automatic rotation, compression, mailing and removal
of log files. Logrotate can be set to handle a log file daily, weekly, monthly,
or when the log file reaches a certain size. Normally, logrotate runs as a
daily cron job.
It manages plain files only and is not involved in systemd's journal rotation.
