Yes, restarting it will start a new log file if the old one is moved
away.  However, also reconfig will do, and you can trigger that by
sending the process a HUP signal.  That way you don't have to restart
the daemon.  We have this in our logrotate file:

        ## Using the newer feature of reconfig when getting a SIGHUP.
        kill -hup $(ps -C slurmctld h -o pid)
        kill -hup $(ps -C slurmdbd h -o pid)

(That is for both slurmctld.log and slurmdbd.log.)
