It's common practice to periodically cut off Unix log files, with a
frequency dictated by practical sizing or useful intervals (weekly,
monthly).  With those written by Syslog, sending a HUP signal to
syslogd causes opening a fresh instance of the log.  We add
a .YYYYMMDD timestamp suffix to the cut off file, to know when the
deed was done; then we do 'gzip -9' on that to minimally compress,
then shuffle that off to an HSM file system for five years.
