Grid engine does not truncate or rotate logfiles by default (as stated 
in the docs). It's not considered an issue at all but it does catch 
people by surprise.

Lots of valid reasons for no auto-rotation including the fact that this 
would break qacct and may freak out the dbwriter process on systems that 
use ARCo. Much better for the rotation to be handled and explicitly set 
up by the local admins to meet their particular needs.
