Depends on if you want the data or not, I guess :)

I used to simply logrotate  mine (monthly, I think, that kept them a good 
size, and keep last months' uncompressed) - that worked well, and they 
compress well :)  There might even be configuration examples for that shipped 
with it, I can't remember.
