Remotely monitoring server activity

Ok, I finally went ahead and successfully configured rsyslog to forward
localX messages to a remote syslog server.
The thing is that the files being logged to disk by the detailed log under
/var/log/radiusd/radacct were taking a lot of space in my server. Because I
had the remote syslog thingy working I just disabled this log to disk, now,
there's noting being dumped to /var/log/radiusd/radacct.

However, now I have to forward accounting packets to another radius server
and in the documentation (yeah, I've read (most of) it :) ) I see the
copy-acct-to-home-server virtual server makes use of those log files....

What should I do? - as far as i can understand, I should just suck it up
and either enlarge the /var/log partition or just create some sort of
external script that purges those files.... wat's the common practice for
these cases?
