rsyslog and loganalyzer


Installed this last week and just from one syslog source (firewall) the mysql database is 26 gigs in size. I am not sure where to change the preferences but how can I limit the size it uses for storage?

They have a wiki entry about this very thing.

Basically you can set up a cron job to run their maintenance script.
