While not actually a way to reduce the number of joblogs (we use log(4 00 *seclvl) logclpgm(*YES) for almost all of our production jobs), it helps if you don't dump -all- of your logs in one output queue!

We have 6 output queues: JOBLOG1MO, JOBLOG2TU, JOBLOG3WE, etc. (one queue for SAT + SUN). And a set of automated jobs to change the print files for joblogs, program dumps, and display job to the daily JOBLOG* output queue.

CHGPRTF QPJOBLOG OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)
CHGPRTF QPPGMDMP OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)
CHGPRTF QPDSPJOB OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)

This places all of the 'utility' output in one place. We save the output queues as part of our daily backups, then clear the queues after a few days. This makes the joblogs &c available to track problems, but they are cleared out so they don't become more clutter.
