      Description

      Can mongod automatically rename old log files and start new ones without having to restart?

      If we can specify either a size or time (or both), once that threshold is reached, server should start logging to a new log file. If renaming old log files is not efficient, log file name can have the timestamp.

      This helps a lot when having to go through log files. If log files are too large, it becomes a nightmare to go through those.
