There is no internal mechanism to roll the io logs but removing old
I/O logs based on age (or size) shouldn't cause any problems.

I don't think that logrotate supports rotating entire directories,
but I don't really have much experience with it so please correct
me if I am wrong.  I would think that you could just use the find
command if you want to purge based on age.
