Log file rolling by size

Hi,

Is there a possibility to configure the logging.yml that log file a rolled
by size (instead of dailyRollingFile)?
Is there a documentation of all logging options anywhere?

Thanks in advance, Ulli

By default elasticsearch is using log4j. So, the logging.yml file is
basically standard log4j.properties file only translated from .properties
format into YAML format and with all log4j. prefixes omitted. Basically
something like

rootLogger: INFO, console, file
logger:

log action execution errors for easier debugging

action: DEBUG
.....

in standard log4j.properties file would look like

log4j.rootLogger=INFO, console, file
log4j.logger.action=DEBUG
.....

The log4j configuration is explained
here: http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/manual.html

To setup log file rolled by size, you need to replace dailyRollingFile
appender with rollingFilehttp://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/apidocs/org/apache/log4j/RollingFileAppender.htmlappender and remove datePattern. For example:

appender:
.....
file:
type: rollingFile
file: ${path.logs}/${cluster.name}.log
maxFileSize: 10000000
maxBackupIndex: 10
layout:
type: pattern
conversionPattern: "[%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c] %m%n"
