#36795 closed defect (fixed)

Logrotate does not truncate while program is running.

Port: logrotate

Description

OS 10.6.8 Xcode - 3.6.8 Latest Macports and logrotate

everything installed perfect on a clean system. we have implement logrotate on a Linux system. but the truncate feature is not working in macports version on mac osx. it only truncates if the application is not currently writing to the log file. we cannot execute a SIGHUP, to kill the program because we want the program always running, just like on Linux.

Thanks. Looks like MacPorts logrotate behaves as expected so I'm closing this ticket as invalid.
