Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And so it does not matter what is defined in logrotate.conf ?? Whether daily or weekly is set in logrotate.conf does not matter when I use a crontab ?
No, it will rotate the logs specified in the logrotate.conf file.
Tells logrotate to force the rotation, even if it doesn't think this is necessary. Sometimes this is useful after adding new entries to a logrotate config file, or
if old log files have been removed by hand, as the new files will be created, and logging will continue correctly.
So if the value "rotate weekly" is set in logrotate.conf, then at the end of the week I will have an extra rotation ?
If it meets the values, like size etc
It will only rotade if the size is > then x,or if the log is older then x
But since you are going to rotate several times a day, the weekly and monthly rotation doesn't matter anymore.
