This is an OS issue. On Linux, I use logrotate. It's standard in most 
distributions. On Windows, you will likely have to write a script for 
the scheduler.

I think you can also limit what gets logged. There's no need to log 
every request for the site logo, css, and such.

Finally, you can cache commonly requested items either in Zope (if 
standalong) or Apache (much better). If cached in Apache, Zope will 
never even see the request.

I'm copying this to TriZPUG for added benefit/feedback.
