Description Chris Rueedi 2003-05-16 09:09:10 UTC
rotatelogs.exe still alive after apche2 service shutdown. There are several 
rotatelogs.exe in my process list. As longer as the service is alive, the more 
rotatelogs.exe  are in the list. I gues they aren't shutting down properly.

These are my httpd.conf entries


ErrorLog "|C:/Programme/apache2/bin/rotatelogs.exe D:/log/GK/apache2/GG98S005-
apache2-error.log 86400"

Having same problem, running Apache 2.0.45 on Windows 2000 SP3.

Everytime Apache is started, 2 rotatelogs processes are started, and only one 
stops when Apache is shutdown.

Also, I cannot kill off the zombie processes with "end process".

Having same problem, running httpd-2.0.47 on linux(prefork model).
When Apache is runnning with 5 httpd processes and a rotatelogs process, I carry
out "apahectl stop", all httpd processes was killed, but the rotatelogs process
is alive.

Here is CustomLog entry in my httpd.conf:
CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs /usr/local/apache2/logs/access_a_log 10800" combined

I'm having the same problem both with Apache 2.0.47 and 2.0.48 with rotatelogs
and cronolog. I think that is some problem with the way apache is pipeing.

My cronolog line:

CustomLog "|/usr/local/sbin/cronolog
/usr/local/sites/default/logs/access.%Y-%m-%d.log" combined
