Rotatelogs - Do I have too many child processes?


After running for about 100 days, 'ps -A' shows quite a few rotatelogs processes running. IS there something I need to do, be concerned with, or just reboot?

Code:
 ps -A | pg
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
    1 ?        00:00:05 init
    2 ?        00:00:00 keventd
