Hi all,

We are using "logrotate" tool on RHEL for various log rotation.
Current HotSpot has gclog rotation function for log size base,
however I need to rotate gc log synchronizing with logrotate tool.

So I've created RFE as "JDK-7090324: gclog rotation via external tool" .
And Sr. Engineering Manager in Oracle said he use the essence of my patch in one
of the jcmd subcommands.

2 years ago, I posted a patch for this RFE.
But this patch is too old to apply for current HotSpot.

In last month, a similar discussion was appeared in ML.
So I think it's time to discuss this RFE.

Please cooperate.

Best regards,
