[nsd-users] nsd.log rotation

How do you rotate nsd.log? I'm under FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE with the
latest NSD 1.4.9 installed from ports, and trying to rotate
/var/log/nsd.log using newsyslogd:


        do-ip4: yes
        do-ip6: no
        verbosity: 2
        chroot: "/usr/local/etc/nsd"
        zonesdir: "/usr/local/etc/nsd"
        zonelistfile: "zone.list"
        database: "var/db/nsd/nsd.db"
        logfile: "/var/log/nsd.log"
        pidfile: "var/run/nsd.pid"
        xfrdfile: "var/db/nsd/xfrd.state"
        xfrdir: "var/db/nsd/"
        hide-version: yes


/var/log/nsd.log    nsd:nsd    644   7   100   *   Z
/usr/local/etc/nsd/var/run/nsd.pid 1

Sending 1 (HUP) to /usr/local/etc/nsd/var/run/nsd.pid doesn't seem to
have any effect -- the file is rotated but no new log entries added

% ls -al /var/log/nsd.log*
-rw-r--r--  1 nsd  nsd     90 May 23 10:00 /var/log/nsd.log
-rw-r--r--  1 nsd  nsd  50668 May 23 10:00 /var/log/nsd.log.0.gz

# cat /var/log/nsd.log
May 23 10:00:00 ns-feeder newsyslog[59218]: logfile turned over due to size>100K

Is this because of the chroot? Do I need to fire 'nsd-control
log_reopen' instead?

Thank you.
