    Feature suggestion: abillity to delete older log files

    Hi Dan,

    Great package. Might I offer a feature suggestion?

    In my setup, a new log file is created every day. Of course I can open up the server with my ftp program, go to the app_data/logs folder and delete the files no longer needed. But I think that with your package there can now be a better, faster and more Umbracian way: why not add an '3 dot click menu' on logs shown in the tree to delete the file selected? If you want to make it really fancy a dashboard could be opened on the 'Tace logs' node with which you could bulk delete multiple files in one sweep in a new list view like manner.

    Hi Vincent,

    Sounds like a good idea! I've been asked by someone else to have a download file, so I guess a delete option can also be included. Will look into it for the next release.

    I think there is also a way of limiting how many log files are generated in Umbraco, as it uses Log4Net - have a look at /config/log4net.config and  This may be a better solution for you long term?

    Yes, want to look into config options. Just not enough hours in a day....
