man isdnd:

     Sending a USR1 signal to isdnd causes the accounting file and the logfile
     (if logging to a file is used instead of logging via the syslog(3) facil-
     ity) to be closed and reopened to make logfile rotation possible.

Wenn Du syslog-logging benutzt, dann in etwa:

cd /var/log
echo ""
echo "Sending isdnd accounting log root, Subject: Weekly ISDN Charges"
/usr/local/bin/isdnd_acct | mail -s "Weekly ISDN Charges" root
cp /dev/null isdnd.acct
chmod 644 isdnd.acct
echo ""
echo "Restarting syslogd"
kill -1 `cat /var/run/`
