Ability to to turn on audit log compression/deletion
Ops Manager currently allows the ability to rotate audit logs based on the threshold settings in the Update MongoDB Log Settings modal but audit.logs do not compress/delete as the mongodb.logs do from the same modal. We would like the ability to either toggle compression/deletion of audit.log in that modal or a separate modal. We think a separate modal would be better since audit.logs may be used for security forensics and require a longer retention period.

Note - The current behavior is intended hence the suggestion to add compression and deletion of audit logs is indeed a feature request. When the rotation for audit logs was added a significant portion of input at the time was that the same process that then compresses and deletes server logs should not impact audit logs as their use and security scope are often significantly different. However the input provided here will help direct if having a similar capability, set for only audit logs, is needed.
audit logs gets rotated, but never compressed and deleted. So that is a bug; not a feature.
