We are looking for ways to prevent Hadoop daemon logs from piling up

Unfortunately, the log4j DRFA class doesn't seem to provide an easy
way to limit the number of files it creates. I would like to try
switching to RFA with set MaxFileSize and MaxBackupIndex, since it
looks like that's going to solve the log accumulation problem, but I
can't figure out how to change the default logging class for the
daemons. Can anyone give me some hints on how to do it?
Alternatively, please let me know if there's a better solution to
control log accumulation.
