    Post How to rotate catalina.out without restarting tomcat

    The catalin.out file is ever growing and there seems to be now easy way of rotating it.

    I am surprised that Tomcat developers have not used something like logger for logging server output.....I hope there is a way....

    any help would be appreciated...
    Have fun....

    Default Use logrotate

    You can use logrotate on linux/unix machine to rotate catalina.out without restarting tomcat.
