Description

Rotation on redhat (and possibly Ubuntu) is not correctly working. The postrotate command is "service rsyslogd reload"
However, rsyslogd reload simply exit 3, without reloading anything, so it still write in all.log.1 rather than all.log

The correct solution seems to be

 /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslogd.pid

(or the correct path of kill according to the systems)

see https://www.redhat.com/archives/rhelv6-list/2012-June/msg00068.html
