Bug Description

Brief Description
-----------------
When testing distributed cloud system with 10 subclouds noticed that /var/log/dcorch was rotating logs out after 4+ days. As the number of logs scale with number of subclouds either the syslog size/rotate parameters have to be increased or the content of the logs need to be reduced if more subclouds are added.
Seems like a lot of debuggish info logs.

Severity
--------
Minor

Steps to Reproduce
------------------
Set up DC system with 10 subclouds. Observe /var/log/dcorch

Expected Behavior
------------------
Not sure if there's a specific requirement but we should be not filling logs unnecessarily.

Actual Behavior
----------------
dcorch logs are rotated out after 4-5 days

Reproducibility
---------------
Reproducible

System Configuration
--------------------
All-in-one duplex plus worker, DC system controller with 10 subclouds

dcorch logs are set to size 10M, rotate 20 in /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
Also dcorch openstack logs are duplicated in /var/log/openstack.log
