So, at one of my client sites I noticed that the Active log filesystem is
sitting at 82% full.  This is not normal for this TSM server.  Looking in
the filesystem I saw active logs going back four days.   Checking the actlog
shows that TSM db backups are still running properly every day, but just to
be safe I ran two db backups in succession.  No logs were removed.

I decided to keep an eye on it.  What I see happening is that each morning
when I look at it, there are still four days worth of logs, but the oldest
logs are moving forward by a day. ie.  when I looked on July 22, the oldest
log was July 18.  When I looked on July 23, the oldest log was July 19.
 Today, July 25, I see the oldest log is July 21.

This strikes me as a bit bizarre.  Anyone have any ideas?
