We've been getting some space issues recently on our /xymon filesystem. We don't really want to add more space so I am looking at implementing some housekeeping on the /xymon/data/hostdata folder.

If I run a find command there are nearly 58000 files over 180 days old and I don't really think we need to keep client data from alerts older than that. Is there a built in way to manage this or is it a case of writing a script to manage it?
