Manage the periodic logs

sudo is easy to use. Just type sudo and then the command you want to run on the same line (as in the example at the top). You will be prompted for a password which is your user account password that you are logged in as. On the standard Mac OSX install, only administrators are allowed to use sudo.

However, don't bother in this instance. My daily.out file is currently 242 Kbytes and that's since March 20. If it gets to 0.5Gb there's something wrong with your system and you'll need daily.out to find out what.
