Confusion: server.log and server.log-YYYY-MM-DD-HH

Hey folks,

we have installed confluent-platform 7.3 on RHEL 8. In /var/log/kafka, i found a server.log and a server.log-YEAR-MONTH-DAY-HOUR file which is rotated frequently.
Both logs are written continiously with different messages, so server.log-YEAR-MONTH-DAY-HOUR isnt a rotation from server.log.
Is this behaviour normal? I believe the server.log contains zookeeperstuff and the other one kafka-logs.

thank you.

kind regards,

Consult your server’s file for how log files are managed and rotated.
