Understanding the log rotation and retention policy for the CRSD, CSSD  and EVMD daemons.

In the $ORA_CRS_HOME/log/<hostname>/crsd we see files like the following:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 root dba 10529378 Jan 6 19:32 crsd.l01
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root dba 4327200 Dec 12 08:51 crsd.l02
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root dba 7684677 Feb 1 23:39 crsd.log

Similar files are also seen in the cssd and evmd directories.

In the above the crsd.log is the most recent log and will be currently written to. The crsd.101 is the next latest log. crsd102 is the next one and so on.
