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.)
