How to periodically purge the data from the database?

In order to keep the size of the database down, I am using filters to limit the entries. How do I periodically purge the data from the database?
We have a free tool called LogDeleter which can be used to delete all records older than x days. You can schedule this task in order to keep your database small.
Note: this tool can run as Windows tool with a GUI or as command line tool. For further information please read the LogDeleter man page [PDF].
Download LogDeleter here. Unzip the files in the folder you want. No install process is required.
