In Apache 1.3.3 (Solaris) we are using the USR1 signal (or HUP) to rotate the
log files daily.
Our rotation strategy is:
1) rename log file
2) issue USR1
What appears to be happening though, is that Apache is not closing the file
descriptors for the old log files. (We eventually run out of file descriptors -
in just over a month) and lsof shows that Apache still has all the old log
Anyone else noticed this behaviour?
