Deleting all logs on all servers quickly

Last Modified: 2010-04-20
Hello I need to delete all log files in my /home/users folder

I need to go down into ever directory and delete all .log files.

Also if I could use rsync to do it so that I can do this on all my servers that would be great (the server directories are different for some users, and completely different on each server box)

How would I do this?

Thanks, Brad
