Is there any way, without having to code up my own solution, to limit STDOUT log size?

Our Jira instance ran out of space because the STD file got to be 30+GB.  How can this file be managed so that it always stays at a reasonably small size?

You can do it in the log4j.properties file. A great explanation of the stdout output and how to roll the logs is on this bug report:

Here is the link to the comment on stdout:
