With roughly 3700 calls per day, our logfile (trace level 4) is roughly 6-6.5 meg, with the details file being slightly smaller, at about 5-5.5 meg per day. All our accounting we log into a database, but we also use the standard logfiles just as a backup. So for a month, these two log files account for about 300+ meg (getting bigger every month). Since we are running Radiator under NT, I just use WinZip once a month to archive the logs, which brings them down to about 25 meg per month, which is not bad compression!
