Parameters

Date/Units
This can either be a number from 1-31 representing a day-of-the month date or one of the following key words:
MonthStart
Cycle at the beginning of the month. This is the same as a 1.
MonthEnd
Cycle at the end of the month.
Monday
Cycle on Monday.
Tuesday
Cycle on Tuesday
Wednesday

Thursday
Cycle on Thursday
Friday

Saturday

Sunday

Daily
Cycle on a per-day basis.
ServerStart
Cycle on the day of the month the server was started.
If this parameter is missing, cycling will be turned off.
Time
This can either be ServerStart, meaning the time the server was started or a time of the format HH:MM:SS. The seconds are optional and valid hours are from 00 to 23.

Period
This specifies how long to wait between cycles and is combined with the Date/Units field. For instance, with a period of 2 and a Date/Units of 3, cycling will occur every two months on the third of the month. If the Date/Units were changed to Saturday, cycling would occur every two weeks on a Saturday.

MaxFiles
This is the maximum number of files to keep when cycling. When this number is exceeded, old files will be deleted when new files are created while cycling.

Default If No Entry Found

By default, cycling is not enabled.
