RabbitMQ logs are not properly rotated

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • RabbitMQ logs are not properly rotated. The supposed current log (rabbit@example-rabbitmq-001.log) has zero size and older time stamp. RabbitMQ continues writing to the previous log file. For example
[root@csl-a-rabbitmq-001 rabbitmq]# ll -rt
-rw-r--r--. 1 rabbitmq rabbitmq       0 Sep 16 03:14 rabbit@example-rabbitmq-001.log
-rw-r--r--. 1 rabbitmq rabbitmq 4981057 Sep 25 21:32 rabbit@example-rabbitmq-001.log-20150916
