I don't think so.  You could remove most Statslog()s from the OpenLDAP
source.  Or log with level 256 to a pipe to a program which massages the
log down to a manageable size.  (log to "|program" in syslog.conf,
or slapd -d 256 2>&1 >/dev/null | program.)

A variant would be to use loglevel 256 or 256+512, log to local files,
and filter them for some messages to upload to Spunk (whatever that is).
Rotate the local files, retaining them for debugging for some time.
