    How to compress logfiles in WildFly-8.1 using periodic-rotating-file-handler

    rob_ Newbie

      At the moment i'm searching for a way to automatically compress/zip my logfiles, after WildFly (8.1.0.Final) "archived" them, as it was possible in older JBoss version. My configuration currently looks like this:

      [...]

      <profile>

      <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:logging:2.0">

      <periodic-rotating-file-handler name="FILE" autoflush="true">

      <formatter> <named-formatter name="PATTERN"/></formatter>

      <file relative-to="jboss.server.log.dir" path="server.log"/>

      <suffix value=".yyyy-MM-dd"/> <append value="true"/>

      </periodic-rotating-file-handler>

      [...]

      While trying to respect this: http://wildscribe.github.io/Wildfly/8.1.0.Final/subsystem/logging/periodic-rotating-file-handler/index.html there seems to be no trace of any compression.

      My main goal is to NOT use an external tool for compression that works outside of WildFly.
