The log file which did not get rotated should be the one associated with 
a client.

The appropriate mechanism to do log rotation would be to use logrotate 
command with the config file available at /etc/logrotate.d/glusterfs. 
This mechanism rotates log files of all glusterfs processes.The log 
rotate <volname> command will be deprecated in a  future release.
