Nagios archives/ log rotation file syntax

When I look in archives/ the files look like this:
Code: Select all
-rw-r--r-- 1 nagios nagios 664K Apr 24 01:58 nagios-04-24-2022-00.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 nagios nagios 664K Apr 25 01:58 nagios-04-25-2022-00.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 nagios nagios 884K Apr 26 01:59 nagios-04-26-2022-00.log

I'd like this date syntax to mirror what I've set in nagios.cfg, i.e. date_format=iso8601

How can I make sure the files are archived with a syntax more like:

Code: Select all
nagios-2022-04-26.log

I understand I could just skip Nagios own log rotation and use external log rotation, but I'd like to know if there's an easier way to just set it in Nagios first.
