Ignore my stupidity! Reply below assumed massive accounting file not 
qmaster messages file.

I've never seen qmaster messages file get that big in my environments 
but it would be something I'd consider monitoring with Nagios or 
whatever. Sounds like rotation would be good but in general it would be 
more informative to find out what is making that file so large!
