mgetty.log.9600 growing to large, how to manage?


hello,

we have this file mgetty.log.9600 in /var/log that's been growing in size every day since we setup a RH linux server for our main CRM app in July of this year. It's up to 79.6 MB in size at present and gets added to constantly.
Is there a way to control it's size so it's automatically clears itself out every week?

thanks in advance,
david

I've looked at the logrotate online manual.
Could you give an example of how to rotate the mgetty.log.9600 file once a week?
thanks,
david
