[Xymon] histlogs cleanup

I got this xymon ext script checking a Sun StorageTek 6180 array.
It works quite well, each run generates a lot of status and data.
The problem is it generates about 35000 files in Xymonserver: xymon/data/histlogs/a6180/<test>  a month.

I'm very interested in keeping history as in graphs and alerts.
What are these histlogs files used for by the xymonserver?
If they are used just to generate things as they come in then it's no problem deleting them every 2 weeks or so.
But if they are used to generate graphs or see alerts history etc then you really don't want to delete them

Could anyone shed some light on this?
