For sudo 1.8.7 and above you can set maxseq in sudoers to the largest
number of I/O logs you want to keep.  E.g. given

    Defaults maxseq 100

the sequence number would wrap after 100, effectively limiting you
to 100 I/O logs.  

Another approach is to use find to remove I/O logs based on the
creation date.
