How can I downsize logfiles?

Logfiles (e.g. from Apache server or syslog) grow very big over time. There are the following ways of downsizing and managing logfiles:

- manual packing or deleting of the logfiles
- running Logrotate on the logfiles

The latter is working periodically through alle logfiles (using cron) and packs or deletes them if they have reached a certain size oder age.
