Our product ships with MongoDB and the user has no administrators to handle roling of log files etc. This means all maintenance has to be handled by our product.
It would be a lot easier of MongoDB supports automatic rolling of log files based on date or file size etc. instead of us having to set up a scheduled task programmatically when installing.
It is related to this request

- depends on
SERVER-4905 logRotate should conform to standard log rotation mechanisms
