Orcallator.se is designed to handle access log's that are moved and/or
truncated.  However, once you move access_log, you should make sure
that no more data is appended to it, because orcallator.se will miss
the additional data.  If orcallator.se sees that the access log it
was instructed to read has a different inode or the size of the file
shrank, then it'll close the file it was reading and open the new

So you shouldn't have any problems.
