    Description

      Spin off from SERVER-5325. Simple log rotate example for 3.4+:

      /var/log/mongodb/*.log {
        daily
        missingok
        rotate 5
        compress
        dateext
        delaycompress
        sharedscripts
        postrotate
             /usr/bin/kill -SIGUSR1 `/usr/bin/cat /var/run/mongod.pid`
        endscript
        notifempty
      }
      

      The default mongod.conf should also be altered to set log rotate behavior to "reopen" and pidfile set to /var/run/mongod.pid
