Yasha,  I've used the following with success.  The 'copytruncate' directive is what you want to allow suricata to continue writing to the same file handle while rotating off old stats.

"/var/log/suricata/stats.log" {  daily  compress  copytruncate  rotate 7  missingok}

I am trying to logrotate stats.log file

My logrotate config for that file is 
/var/log/suricata/stats.log {
        size 20k

        create 0640 suricata suricata

I am not an expert on logrotate but this was working for other system files like syslog.

So stats.log rotated this past friday but Suricata is still writting to old file.

-rw-r----- 1 suricata suricata          0 Jul  6 03:12 stats.log
-rw-r----- 1 root     root     1019158188 Jul  7 11:01 stats.log-20140706

Does anybody know how to get logrotation configured with Suricata for stats.log file?
