Log File or Available Space Monitoring

This is a not-so-sporadic problem: USB mouse begins spewing errors and these 
grow the syslog and daemon.log files until /var is full. At this point, the 
filesystem journal and the mail system are crippled. One must remove these two 
files and reboot. The bootup check will remove an inode or so and things will 

I would like some daemon to monitor either selected log files or the available 
space and alert before this gets out of hand. At this point, automatic 
execution of a script or manual deletion can be done before its "too late."

Any ideas?
