This interface allows you to select cPanel & WHM log files for the cpanellogd daemon to compress and archive. At the end of each month, the cpanellogd daemon compresses the selected log files into a single file for each type.

The system archives the compressed files in the /usr/local/cpanel/logs/archive/ directory.

The cpanellogd daemon archives the domlog files at the end of each month.
The system does not automatically delete the compressed log files. You must manually delete any unnecessary files.
