Auto Archive Clientexec Logs

Auto Archive Log will generates a file with an SQL dump of the log tables you select on a periodic basis (default setting is the 15th of the month), and delivers it to the locations you select and then deletes the log tables..

First ensure you set up the cron job on your cPanel, Directadmin or other panel. You can find those details here.
Next, go to Settings > Plugins > Automation Services and in the dropdown select Archive Logs.

Select Yes for enabled in order to activate this feature. And go through the other options:
