There are a few questions on how to rotate the output file generated by
nohup. Most of the answers say to use
logrotate with the
However this does not actually work — when the rotation occurs, it creates the rotated logfiles ok but the original file is not actually truncated and further log output continues to be appended.
This also occurs if I don't use
nohup and just run
myscript.py >>myscript.log (so basically
copytruncate seems completely useless).
What's the "right" way to do this? (If custom script is required, either Bash or Python is preferred.)
