Bloated? If 8 entried/hour "bloats" your apache logs, why are you running apache at all, it seems like absolutely nobody is using it. In the 7,829 lines of my log, 20 of those are 404s from Code Red and 79 are 404s in general. And this is my home computer/developer computer, not my main server.

Another way to look at it is that one line of error from one Code Red attempt is less than 450 bytes. My hard drive is 30 Gigabytes. 450 bytes divided by 30 Gigabytes is just about Zero. Even 20 time 450 bytes is Zero. And since logs are generally used as data for statistics making programs, all you have to do is find the percentage of 404s that are from Code Red (in my case it is 20/79 which is about 25%) and keep that in mind while looking at the general statistics.
