I would not worry about the log size for OpenERP, it is really small compared to other stuff running in your linux server. Now, if you really worry about your log size, do this:

You could take a look at : /etc/logrotate.conf and /etc/logrotate.d/postgresql-common

My advice will be to copy (as root) postgresql-common file like :

cp /etc/logrotate.d/postgresql-common /etc/logrotate.d/openerp

then edit the "/etc/logrotate.d/openerp" file (vi or other editor) and change the file name on the first line (replace "/var/log/postgresql/*.log" by "/var/log/openerp-server.log")

After this, depending the size of the openerp-server.log file, you could change from weekly to daily for the logrotate frequency within /etc/logrotate.d/openerp file.

Hope this will help you.

Have a nide day. @++ Nicolas
