Look at dcc_conf

# days to keep files in DCC log directories
DBCLEAN_LOGDAYS=14  <---  I think this is the default.

The cron-dccd and cron-dcc jobs do the cleanup process.

Jan Peter,

Have a look in /usr/local/dcc/dcc_conf at the DCCM_LOG_AT and
DCCIFD_LOG_AT parameters.
These control the 'bulkiness' after which messages get logged.
You can also use the -t option of dccifd.
