Can any one tell me about RotateLogs.exe. What exactly it do?
As name suggest, one can guess that it is utility program and works to rotate Log files. But, I can see more than 60 process running. each of around 1.5 MB.

I think this is stupidity. As its production server I can not restart

Can any one help me for the same??? any alternate solutions ???

In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a
list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our
FAQ section here.
In particular please see:
UseAMeaningfulSubjectLine

Telling us what you hate is not a very meaningful subject line.
What version of Tomcat are you using?
What operating system are you using?

Depending on your OS, ps or top may display each Java thread as a separate process. If this is what's going on with your system, then all those threads are sharing the same 1.5 megs.

Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question.
-Ben

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Any Way Thanks Ben for the guidance provided for Java Ranch Question Posting.

Still I didnt find Solution.

A short search for "RotateLogs.exe" on Google returned this:
http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=43493

It appears to be a buggy thing in Apache HTTP Server. Do some more searching and you'll most likely find more useful info.

See also this page in the Apache HTTPD docs:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/rotatelogs.html

You can probably easily switch it off in the Apache HTTPD config files if it bothers you.
