bind is configured to limit the log file size to 2m and to add up to 3 versions of the log files. During the testing of this bind server, is has occured that bind does not stop logging if the file size reaches more than 2m. During the testing of this bind server, is has occured that bind does not add e.g. "bind.log.1", "bind.log.2" and so on, after restarting bind.

Is someone able to help me with this?
