Logrotate Creating Empty Rotated Files

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have the following parameters set up for the log rotation of a log. size=10M, rotate 800, copytruncate, missingok. 800 rotated files are being created, but many of them are below 10M and some of them are empty with 0 size. I have a cron setup as * * * * * which runs every minute to do this logrotation. I don't want this, can't understand why it is happening. Please Help. (HowTos)
