Bill Brown is a Developer at Desert Schools Federal Credit Union. They're a very sharp group, and also a client of Corillian. Bill emailed us to share his LogZipper.NET Log Rotation application hosted at SourceForge. He's whipping out new releases with suggestions integrated pretty fast.

Here's what he told us:

I've developed a log rotation app called LogZipper.NET. It's a console application that takes a variety of command-line switches, collates log files defined by a user-specified pattern mask according to a user-specified rotation scheme, and optionally moves the archived log files to another destination folder.

Since it's entirely operated by command-line parameters, it can be scheduled using Windows Scheduler and multiple instances can exist on a server. It does a checksum on each log file that it zips and rotates so authenticity is guaranteed.

I'm all about the snazzy utilities, and I'm all about the command-line, so it's time for me to dig into this little util. Update: I see it's on Larkware.com today as well!
