http://serverfault.com – CentOS 6.2, bind 9.7.3, rsyslog 4.6.2 I recently set up a server, and I noticed that named had stopped logging to /var/log/messages after the logs had rotated. I thought that was odd, since all logging happens through rsyslog and named doesn't write directly to the log file. It was even more odd because I had HUPed named after updating a zone file, and it still wasn't logging. After I stopped and restarted named, logging resumed. What's going on here? The syslog PID hasn't changed (/var/run/syslogd.pid matches the PID shown in ps). Is rsyslog opening a new socket when logrotate rotates (HowTos)
