18 What I want to know is if the elog program will do something on its
19 own... I'm wanting to hang on to the logs a good while... I saw
20 something in my readings about the elog system about 7 days... was not
21 clear if that is a defalult or what.
23 So my fear was losing them even if I am logrotate at them in some
24 capacity. So I'm asking about inside the elog program... what happens
25 to the logs and when.
