Avoid NFS running out of disk space - Implement config for number of pod logs to keep on NFS global

hi,

today with every restart of a pod there will be a new log folder on NFS global log, see attached screenshot.

there is no auto deletion mechanism provided by SMAX system and hence the disk usage of NFS will grow for ever until the suite crashes.

it is impossible to manually take care of the log clean up and due to the many pods and resulting log folders/structures it is very hard to develop a script which is cleaning the logs.

therefore it would make sense to have a setting which allows a SMAX admin to decide how many versions of pod log folders should be kept, e.g. to only keep the last 5-10 versions makes sense in my eyes.

thanks
