Log rotation issue

    I'm experiencing trouble when setting log rotation to 100kb with a max number of files to keep set to 1

    Log files will still occasionally be created that are up to 2GB in size.

    If left alone these files eventually go away (generally overnight) but this pushes the client and domain both overquota in the meantime.

    Is there any recommendation as to how to set the log rotation so that these large log files are not created?

    Is it because they're generating 2G of logs in a day? or because its not actually triggering when it gets to 2G?

    the problem is that they're set to rotate at 100kb but they're not rotating.
