logrotation doesn't working properly

Dear All,

#cd /var/log
#ls -lh |less

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          10M Feb 28 23:24 postgres.log.20
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb 28 20:16 postgres.log.21
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          10M Feb 28 20:15 postgres.log.22
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb 28 17:04 postgres.log.23
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          10M Feb 28 17:03 postgres.log.24
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb 28 13:52 postgres.log.25
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          10M Feb 28 13:51 postgres.log.26
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb 28 10:56 postgres.log.27
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          10M Feb 28 10:55 postgres.log.28
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb 28 08:40 postgres.log.29
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Mar  2 00:12 postgres.log.3

Why every odd numbered ( postgres.log.3, postgres.log.21 etc. )log file is of size 0. what could be the possible cause

"logrotation doesn't working properly"

You can set up logrotate to work the way that you want it to. So take a look at your logrotate script.
Logrotate is configured in /etc/logrotate.conf on SuSE. You can find it on your distribution with:
find /etc -iname "*logrotate*"
