VMware logs getting large.

I have stumbled over a very large log file in VMware. (7GB)

C:\program files\vmware\infrastructure\tomcat\logs

There are a bunch of stdout_20110901 files that go all the way back to 9/2011.

Then there are bunch of localhost.*date* files as well.

Can I delete any of these? Is there a way to set the logs to flush after a certain amount of time? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If you do not require the logs for Audit, they can be deleted, archived, zipped.

Each component has its own logs.

the only way to flush the logs, is to create your own archiving, deletion routines.

So I can simply select everything from say 3/2012 and earlier and delete them?

Correct. (archive may be best, if you need to refer back)

Ok, well I'm pretty sure all this is backed up, I'll check first and then proceed to remove these logs. Thank you!

Thanks. It was o.k. to remove them, but you aright archiving is probably a good idea.
