Rotate Writing Log File Names

I have write log to a file selected. The files gets large very quickly which makes it hard to parse at some point and I have to manually change the name daily (I should probably do it hourly). Any chance we can get it to automatically change the name of the log file at a certain size or certain interval? Maybe a name with the date/timestamp as the file name when it is created?

    Hmm using log to a file should not be used at all unless you plan to debug something. This slows down things way too much as each thing is stored to hard disk. Whats the reason you are doing this anyway?
  • I didn't realize that. I wanted to create logs so that when I walked away and came back 24 hours later I would have something I could use to see what happened overnight to caused the results I got. It was a pro-active move on my part.

    You should even disable the log completely to speed things up ;)
