VCSA 7.0 /storage/log is low on space AGAIN?

Is dealing with Disk/Log space an issue again in 7.0? 

With 6.0 I was very used to getting space warnings and having to trim logs and reconfiguring log rotations.  WHEN I UPGRADED TO 6.7 I NEVER ONCE HAD TO CLEAN UP SPACE.  

I upgraded to 7.0 just a couple months ago and although my VCSA Disk size went from 1 TB to 3 TB I am now getting Storage warnings on my VCSA. 

File system /storage/log is low on storage space.
Increase the size of disk /storage/log

I haven't researched it much yet and but is this going to become a common maintenance task again?  If so, I am very disappointed. 

I will update this thread with my findings but wondering if anyone else is dealing with space issues since upgrading to 7.0?

So the culprit in my situation appears to be the sps-access-log.2021-03-23.log files found in /var/log/vmware/vmware-sps .  Simple rm of the older ones cleaned up space.  Found an article that also mentioned removing Storage Profile Service access logs.

  1. Check for and remove excessive Storage Profile Service access logs
cd /var/log/vmware/vmware-sps
ls -lha sps-access*log
rm sps-access*log
 
I had thought they had improved the log handling in 6.7 as I didn't have to clean up logs nor have I run out of space since I was on 6.0.  If this is the norm again that's a big step back.
