Daily Rotation Time


I have the log set to rotate daily and notice that on two servers they both seem to rotate at approx 5pm. Is there a way to change that to midnight? We deal with shipping and 3pm to 6pm are our most active times. So 5pm tend to cut what I would consider a days logs in to two parts.



Hello Randy,

Thanks for your posting. SmartInspect currently rotates log files at midnight UTC (so it’s the same across servers without time zone differences). It’s unfortunately not possible to change this directly without customizing the file protocol.
