Nothing wrong with ls -l, I just want logfiles to have the
YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM extention, instead of .[0-9], so that they are not
overwritten (or rolled over) too quickly if I suddently get lots of
entries.

When I think about it, I might get at the same result by setting the
directive as:
disable:
  logfile size=5M rotate=100

and then later on, in tidy, delete any file older than, say, 3 months.

Our ultimate goal is to make overloaded machines appear to be idle.
High performance, High reliability, Low cost -------- Pick any two.
