JIRA writes logging to configurable places.
JIRA creates backups via a service to a configurable place.
Does JIRA have any mechanism for removing older files or any other way of preventing the file system becoming full?
Add that you'd expect an application to do it's own disk space monitoring when that's pretty universally seen as the job of the Operating System and it's monitoring tools. Why do it differently and re-invent the wheel (several times as OS's are different) in each application when you should be using the best solution for your team/site/os across all the servers?
Of course, that's just an opinion, but everywhere I've worked (mostly corporate), there's constant whinging from Operations when applications try to do monitoring separately or differently from everyone else.
Good point about uniformity and standarisation being easier to achieve when applications don't do this themselves. It's probably swings and roundabouts - what would work well for one organiasation will be annoying to another.
Thanks for your input. I will close this discussion.
I don't think there's any tools in JIRA for that, but I would actually recommend using an Operating System script to manage the content of your file system rather than trying to get JIRA to do the job for you because there will be far better OS level tools for achieveing this.
All the best,

Some of them are for cleaning up temporary directories. However, it is always advised to set a separate filesystem usage monitoring to prevent running out of disk space.
