At one of my previous jobs we rotated the logs, but never deleted them for
few months, so i have seen old gzipped logs 18 months old. To me they never
really served much purpose except when someone wanted timeline for a crash
or similar.
So if you wish you could retain all old logs if it interests you. use
something like logrotate to keep the size manageable else searching,
opening them becomes a pain. Otherwise it depends on available storage and
its usefulness.
