For starters take a look at the syslog config file. It lets you choose where to store the logs and how often to use logroate on them.

/etc/syslog.conf

syslog-ng is a freebie add on product for managing syslogs from multiple servers. It works well.

I think a more specific question would get you better replies. What exactly do you want to know?
