[slurm-users] Correct way to do logrotation

Thanks for doing that, as I did not see this original message, and I also am having to look at configuring our log for rotation.  We once accidentally turned on debug5 and didn't notice until other things started failing because the drive was full...from that ONE file.

I did find this conversation about it, but haven't had a chance to try it.

I'd be interested in this too, and I'm reposting only because the message was flagged as both "dangerous email" and "spam", so people may not have seen it (hopefully my reply will not suffer the same downfall...)

In the past it was recommended to reconfigure slurm daemons in logrotate script, sending a signal I believe was also the way to go. But recently I retested manual logrotation and I see that a removal of log file (for slurmctld, slurmdbd or slurmd) does not affect the logging of the daemons. The dameons just recreate the log files and continue to write logs there. What is the right way to go in case of the modern Slurm versions?

Best regards,
