5 minute log rotations?

Recommended Posts

This is a partial "ls -la" in / on my client machine running 10.7.5. Retro client 12.5.0 (111).

This is the same client that seems to fail from time to time on scheduled backups with "client reserved", when it should not be.
 
What's up with the 5-minute log rotation, and what's "retclient.dat"? Looks like a typo to me.

FWIW, I killed the client (including a "kill <pid>" on retroclient) and the 5 minute rotations are no longer happening - for now, at least.
