All of my Linux servers have a logrotate setup, typically more or less the default as provided by openSUSE and any drop-ins by individual software packages. For audit trails, debugging and statistics, I keep most logs for three years, sometimes even longer. Although the individual servers would have the space, I prefer keeping these archive logs in a central place - that way I only need to go there if I need to look something up.
