The 12\logs on the server(one of WFE's only) are being filled up with messages like this:
The logs are taking around 60+ GB space for a single day.

OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0704)                   	0x071C	Windows SharePoint Services   	Timer                         	5uuf	Monitorable	The previous instance of the timer job 'Application Server Timer Job', id '{19C28EEA-26CC-4784-9B09-C7540F2C0F3C}' for service '{03DC0298-0924-459E-823F-A00776FAFE50}' is still running, so the current instance will be skipped.  Consider increasing the interval between jobs.	
Its happening for the timer jobs : 'Config Refresh', 'Scheduled Approval', 'Workflow', 'Immediate Alerts', 'Variations Propagate Site Job Definition', etc.
Also, all the jobs on the "Timer Job Definitions"  of Central Admin are success.

have you looked at how long these jobs are taking to run? looks like there is a overlap - "Consider increasing the interval between jobs"

Set to 4 min using the following command, but no luck.
stsadm -o setproperty -pn job-config-refresh -pv "Every 4 minutes between 0 and 59"

Its now set to 4 min, but that didn't help solve the problem. The logs are still growing in size with repititive messages.

The logs are really huge up to 1-4GB each file.  In the smallest log file that i could open, i see these messages repeatedly.

All these jobs are admin timer jobs and not ssp timer jobs. I'm not able to see any information that states the job is complete in the logs.

When I tried to delete those specific jobs using stsadm -o deleteconfigurationobject, the operation was successful, but the jobs restarted with different id.
