comment Can I use tail with a file both as input and destination?
the second method is better - but misses a very important step. If there is still a file handle open on logfile the footprint will exist on the disk until it is closed (and the application will continue to write to the old footprint - not the new file). You need to tell the application to reopen the file.

comment How to remove obsoleted logs with logrotate?
