Cronolog allows you to pipe your logs to it, it will then write the logs to a file and create a new file on a time or I believe size, of your choosing. We all ways used it to do daily break over. Then you use logrotate or something similar to compress the old logs.
This provides something like the functionality of log4j with applications that don't support auto-rolling of logs, and won't work with logrotate without a restart.
