Hi guys,

Proxy1 and Proxy2 were getting without space, so i took the opportunity to
run clear up a bit of space...

I've ran this and think we should cron it:
sudo -u apachelog gzip `sudo -u apachelog find /var/log/httpd/ -mtime +7`

- gzip everything in /var/log/httpd that has more then 7 days

And discuss how many days before they are removed:
i would say 60 days (tops), unless we can get a data-warehouse collector for
long term logs.


Ahh yes, So we actually archive these logs onto a different box (where they are processed for stats and things) I'd say that its safe to remove any logs older then 2 weeks. Gziping them is a good idea but I'd setup the gzip on the processing box instead (otherwise we end up with an archive of two versions, the compressed and uncompressed versions.
