      • rename mongodb.log file
      • send USR12 to server to force a log rotation

      using external logrotate configuration on 2.6.4 results in server crash .
      the logrotate renames the initial mongodb.log file in another name then sends the USR1 signal to mongod, this one doesn't find initial file and so terminates.

      • having a missing log file is frequent when people (or logrotate) delete log files expecting to free disk space

      IMHO : even if original ile is missing the server should not terminate.

      Previously I used mongo 2.4.6 from centos repositories with logrotate and had no trouble, I switched to mongo 2.6.4 from mongodb repositories and reused previous logrotate configuration, ad now my servers are crashing at log rotation.
