    you may want to increase the rotate frequency and if not done already, set the compress option

    # see "man logrotate" for details
    # rotate log files weekly
    # keep 4 weeks worth of backlogs
    rotate 4
    # create new (empty) log files after rotating old ones
    # uncomment this if you want your log files compressed
    I also wonder if mrtg is filling up your /var.

    Post your partition layout here.

    Man, you'd be crazy if you log everything with MRTG. Even for a few hours of logging, it fills up my disks pretty quick. Other than that, I'd second what Outlaw said.
