I think the only way to make it smaller is to actually shorten the number of days that syslog messages are retained. I had the same issue with syslog eating up space until I cut the number of days... Secondly I made a concerted effort within my organization for the Operations staff to actually take action on syslog messages, this has reduced the overall amount of messages that are hitting the syslog server...
