Orfeo: increase log retention
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sdb7 2.7G 2.2G 588M 79% /var/logThe current log retention delays are:
- 7 days
- 14 days
- 4 weeks
- 7 months
- 1 year
- Not using logrotate:
- either rotate
/var/log/mail.logeveryday or compress
/var/log/mail.log.1(it would use ~120 Mo instead of 800 Mo)
/var/log/apache2: increase log retention to 2 months

Ok to increase Apache logs. It's not very costly for this host and if it helps debugging, it's fine.
All '.1' files could be compressed, on all hosts in fact.
Bind log is custom, but the directory was in the package IIRC, so that's strange there's no rules. Anyway we should add them.
We should probably investigate what we can do we journald, because it would maybe be easier to handle per-service retention.

I finally got to change the Apache retention. I did it for all hosts. To avoid having a host of files and since the size is reasonable, I switched to a weekly rotation. We would need to cleanup the old files now out of rotation at some point, thus keeping this ticket opened.
In the past I also removed mail.info generation in rsyslog since it does not bring anything interesting and mail.log is sufficient.Currently logs are taking way less space:
- syslog.1: 3.6MB on Orfeo, 6.1MB on Toushirou
- mail.log.1: 22MB on Orfeo, 26MB on Toushirou
So I guess there is no need for further actions at the moment.
