access.log on BSM Gateway servers grows large

BSM 9.24 on LINUX.  

on the Gateway servers, the access.log and  ssl_request.log files in <BSM>/WebServer/logs/ directory grow infinitely without rotation.

Can i safely just delete those logs file *without* stopping Gateway server first, or should the Gateway server be stopped before deleting?

It would be enough to just stop the web server (Apache), no need to stop the entire GW.

Also this is a known issue, and you can find a corresponding workaround here:
