  It can be a pretty simple script too since argus does do the right
  thing if you simply "mv" the log file out from under a running daemon
  (meaning that it just starts a new log file)

  FWIW, here's the script I put in /etc/cron.d/hourly to snip off the argus
  log every hour and rename it as ar-YYYY-MM-DD.HH  (where this timestamp
  is in GMT so you don't have to think about daylight savings). It reads
  the first management record in the log to pick off the time from the
  data rather than doing math on the system clock.
