Log size and backup

When I look at the log4j rolling appender, it seems that file name is does not have time stamp and will have maximum of <x>-defined number of rolling files.

While the Daily Rolling File Appender, has one file for a day and does is not file size based.

Both the above does not seem to meet our requirements. That is size based, unlimited number of files, file names are date+time stamped.

I want my log file should have time stamped and size based and one file for a day

Is it Possible?
Thanks in Advance
