The usual answer is argusarchive (in support/Archive in the argus 2.0.6
distribution) which cycles and archives the logs on an hourly basis. I have
a modified version that will handle multiple instances and a few more changes
in ftp://ftp.sfu.ca/pub/unix/argus/argus.traffic.perl.tar.gz along with a
variety of other scripts useful for keeping argus running.
