Two months after this e-mail, we're having the same situation.

Disk I/O performance on RDO Cloud is not great, so we're close to 95% disk space usage, and old logs deletion is slower than new logs addition. On top of this, any attempt to clear logs more aggressively cause additional load on the server, which results on failed log uploads [1].

Please, could we tackle the excessive log uploads asap? I see the .stackviz virtualenv directories are still being uploaded. If we don't fix this soon, we'll end up having unwanted downtime in the log server, which will affect all jobs.
