How to delete WF_LOG* files properly

Dear SAP Experts,

I have problem with deleting WF_LOG* files in /sapmnt/<<SID>>/global. What kind housekeeping for these files?

I have read many reference from SCN and Notes, but there was nothing files deleted.

Below are any tools that i have used to try delete WF_LOG* files:

- Report RSWTTR02

     Execute with 7 days retention. The log stated several files has been deleted,

     but size of /sapmnt/<<SID>>/global was not decreased.

- T-code SWF_TRC

     There is no item can be deleted, the list of trace catalogs was empty.


     Change creation date, agent, tick "delete immediately" and execute.

     the several work items have been deleted but size of /sapmnt/<<SID>>/global was not decreased.


     Change Date, Time, Agent, "tick immediately", and execute.

     There is history was deleted (my assumption is the history already deleted using RSWWWIDE).

Is there any suggestion to delete WF_LOG* files?

Thanks & regards,
