We are using a lot of ssh sensors that provide very helpful information, and so we poll our Unix machines frequently. Each such poll is registered as a "login" in the system's /var/log/wtmp file, which grows rapidly and without bound. On some of our servers, there is little free disk space on the root partition, so this does cause us problems.
