Take a look at ${COMPRESSOR} as defined in ${bindir}/start_orcallator.
Make sure it is pointing to a valid compression utility (pathnames and
such).  If memory serves me correct, around midnight each night,
orcallator.se tries to open a new log file and compress the old one.  I
could see where if ${COMPRESSOR} was messed up, it might not rollover
properly.  If it was hanging on the rollover, maybe it wouldn't open a
new logfile, hence no new additional data.
