That's not how it normally works.
Generally one of two strategies is employed:
- Move the current log files, then send a signal to the process to tell
it to reload its configuration file, which causes it to reopen the
- Copy the log files, and truncate the old file.
The first option is much nicer, so ideally for integration with
logrotate, you would want to install some signal-handler that tells
twistd to reopen all its logfiles.
