[Jenkins-infra] Proposal: only keep last 24h of ci.jenkins.io access logs

I have fielded a few more alerts than usual with ci.jenkins.io disk filling up
due to excessive access logs caused by the numerous abusive build monitors and
scripts that point to ci.jenkins.io by default (see:

In a 24 hour period we'll create in excess of 1-2GB of access logs for this
garbage traffic alone.

I don't think the access logs for ci.jeknins.io are of any use, and would like
to simply delete old access logs after one day. Retaining 24 hours for
debugging purposes if necessary.

What are your thoughts? Any compelling reason to store these logs?
