about log rotation

I found the way of the log rotation is below. And during the period between
"mv" and "kill",  some logs will be lost because of the file doesn't exist
any more.
Is there any good ways?



nginx will re-open it's logs in response to the USR1 signal.

$ mv access.log access.log.0
$ kill -USR1 <code>cat master.nginx.pid</code>
$ sleep 1
$ gzip access.log.0    # do something with access.log.0
