The server can be started with a request for a "console log" with a max size. Once that size is met a new file is created for more recent entries and this would allow us to periodically delete older log files. Is there a similar method so that a max size can be set for the error log? If not, how do we ever clean it up so that it doesn't keep growing? Of course, one would hope that there wouldn't be too many entries placed in here, but "you never know!" If the error log is always "open for writes" then we probably can't just delete it. How can we know when we can delete an error log in an HA system that is "always running"?
