I assume that means you have a syslog service that logs to a MySQL database?

Heh, no, that's not a good idea :-) Does the syslog software not clean up it's tables?

If it doesn't, you'll have to set up a job that performs delete statements on the
appropriate tables; but I really urge you to check the phpsyslog-ng documentation first.
Any software that writes to a database should really have a mechanism for cleaning up
after itself, too.
