We are running openldap 2.3.30 on Fedora core 6. Everything seems
to be working fine since we started it up in February. However, I
have noticed that in /var/lib/ldap there are a lot of log.00000x
files incrementing from 1 through 58 so far and they are all the same
size of 5242880 bits. Can someone explain to me what the role of
these log files is and if there is anything I should do to keep the
directory clean over time? Should I just ignore them or is there
maintenance or something that is recommended for cleaning up these
log files over time? Is openldap dependent upon all of them for any reason?

Also, are there any other ldap maintenance tasks that one might
recommend doing periodically to keep the ldap databases running
efficiently and reliably? Note we are using Berkley database in case
that matters (*.bdb).
