How long autosupport files are kept on the filer?

Hi, all

On DataONTAP 8, are the files under /etc/log/autosupport deleted after appropriate period of time or size?
If yes, can we change its limitation such as the number of days to keep autosupport files?

On the filer I implemented last Janually, currently there are 50 files of *.0 and 50 directories of *.files under autosupport directory.
I would like to know whether I should create shell to cleanup these files or not.
Just for your information, the man pages of na_autosupport(8) describes that "The spool size is currently 40 messages."

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your reponse.

The autosupport is enabled for collecting system log locally, not to send it to remote.

That's why I would like to know whether autosupport is logrotating or not. Thanks
