How to control log file size in /var/log?


My log files such as "messages" and "wtmp" in directory /var/log keep growing without renaming themselves to *.1 filename and starting a new one. At one point, they could. I am not sure what configuration has been changed to stop such nice feature. Now, where should I look to resume this feature? Thanks.
