[syslog-ng] logstore and idx files

 When using logstore(), it writes to log files with extension .lgs. The
.jor files act as buffers before the logs are written on to the disk in
.lgs files.

Another file that gets created are the .idx files.

What are the .idx files for?
Each day logs from the servers gets stored into different files as the
$Date parameter is used to create the file name. When this happens, suppose
on 23:59:59 hrs, the journal file does not fill up to the chunk size
defined or the chuck time does not expire and the syslog writes to a new
file at 00:00:00hrs then what happens to the logs? do they get written onto
the .lgs files?

Thanks and regards,
