Description

logadm's -c option is defined to "[r]otate the log file by copying it and truncating the original logfile to zero length, rather than renaming the file." This is clearly intended to apply to the log file being rotated – but logadm also applies this to the rotation of all historical logs. This means that multi-gigabyte files are unnecessarily copied instead of being simply renamed.
