>Description:
I had the line
  /var/log/messages                       644  80   30000 @T12 JC
in my /etc/newsyslog.conf yesterday.

/var/log/messages's size was over 33,000,000 bytes.

But when I called "newsyslog" nothing happened...

2. put an appropriate line into newsyslog.conf
3. call newsyslog
