Hi Nagalenoj,

You are right, when I increase the file size to 1000 it appends the content in the file. I thought that 10 in size field for 10MB, I thing its takes 10KB as file size, but I am not sure. Thanks!

    The documentation is unclear, but if you look at the source, it is very clear that the size is in bytes. The size parameter defaults to 10MB, so try the default.

    Here is the relevant section of code from the Log::Dispatch::FileRotate module's constructor:

    # Size defaults to 10meg in all failure modes, hopefully my $ten_meg = 1024*1024*10; my $two_gig = 1024*1024*1024*2; my $size = $ten_meg; $size = $p{size} if defined $p{size}; $size = $ten_meg unless $size =~ /^\d+$/ && $size < $two_gig && $s +ize > 0; $self->{size} = $size;
