Rolling Tomcat Connector Log

We have IIS/Tomcat configured for our environment, and we're using the Tomcat Connector (i.e. Isapi Redirector) to communicate between.

We have it configured and working, but our log file (isapi_redirect.log) just keeps growing.

Does anyone know how to automatically roll or rotate this log file?

I don't know about this configuration, but looking at the docs, it looks like you can only set the log path and log level(debug, info, error or emerg).

Hmm, while our set up is quite different, we also have Connection logs sent to the log file and the log file rotates daily. I'll see what I can see.

Nope, mine isn't applicable unless you're using Tomcat 4.1

There is a remote thread about rolling catalina.out here, but I haven't read it.
I agree. Here's the link:
