[syslog-ng] Log Rotation

I am logging locally to

destination hosts { file("/opt/log/HOSTS/$YEAR/$MONTH/$DAY/$HOST/$PROGRAM" owner(root) group(root) perm(0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes));};

I am also logging to a mysql database

destination d_mysql { pipe("/tmp/mysql.pipe" template("INSERT INTO logs (host, facility, priority, level, tag, date, time, program, msg) VALUES ('$HOST', '$FACILITY', '$PRIORITY', '$LEVEL', '$TAG', '$YEAR-$MONTH-$DAY', '$HOUR:$MIN:$SEC', '$PROGRAM', '$MSG');\n") template-escape(yes)); };

What is the best way to handle log rotation for each?

Best Regards,
