[Buildbot-devel] ShellCommand logfiles become logfolder?

the Buildbot will watch and capture the logfiles pre-specified by ShellCommand,
and store these files on the buildbot master,
and create a link in web display to open these files.

However, my difficulty is that
one of my build step (test step) would create large logfile (200~400MB) everytime,
and the filename is determined by the test suite using timestamp,
so I'm not able to pre-specified the logfile name.

Even I overcome the logfile name issue,
it's inefficient to store all these log in the master machine and try to display the logfile on the web.
(Each time I do the build, I have 10 buildslave for different platform and configuration,
and each of them will have that large test logfile.)

So I wonder, instead of create a link in web display to open the logfile,
is it possible to create a link to just open the buildslave's logfile folder?

Because all of my users,buildslaves and buildmaster are within LAN,
I want to create a logfile link to \\XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX\log<file:///\\XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX\log> in webdiaply for that test step.
I have shared all these folder on each buildslaves.

Thank you,
