There is information missing:
Which Tomcat Version?
Which logging API is in use?

Assuming Tomcat 5.5.x with default installation and Tomcat JULI in use:
Change to x4juli (see and the samples in the
distribution for Tomcat) and use a RollingFileHandler.

Without changing to x4juli (or log4j):
Reduce the log level in conf/ for the FileHandler to
WARNING or SEVERE. You still have the problem that there is no rolling but
the log amount is reduced.
