Helping us help you - ITM Bitesize Edition - sslaccess.log growing too fast

I'm back again with a quick little blog for you that I hope you find useful. We've had a customer log a case with us where they had some files growing out of control and filling up the filesystem -
-rw-r----- 1 itmuser tme 524288011 Jan 27 09:34 .. /log
They had two questions about this -
1. Was there any way to control the growth of the file as it was climbing by 100Mb every hour?
2. Part of the problem was that the IHS rotating the log and appending an epoch time suffix as you can see above. Was there any way to stop this being done/remove this suffix so the information would always be written to the same log - sslaccess.log - which was limited to 500MB in max size?
Unfortunately at this time we do not have any guides on how to tailor what is being logged so the only way to control the filesizes in this instance would be to set up a situation that truncates the logs once they reach a certain size, or look into setting up a crontab task that does it instead. The customer was asked if they wanted to raise an RFE but they declined.
And that's it for today, just a little something for you to potentially keep an eye on!
