Of course per day time will take preference over the size limit of 100 MB &
vice versa.

>From what I understood you want to have log files for 24 weeks (168 days)
One log file per day.

nsslapd-accesslog-maxlogsperdir: 168
nsslapd-accesslog-mode: 600
nsslapd-accesslog-maxlogsize: 1   <-- We have set 1 so that it will ignore
the size of file and rotate only after a day regardless of the size of a
log file.
nsslapd-accesslog-logrotationtime: 1 <-- Since we want to rotate daily
nsslapd-accesslog-logrotationtimeunit: day

Same will be with errorlogs & audit logs.

Regarding Logs delete. (whichever come first)

nsslapd-accesslog-logmaxdiskspace: 500 <--- Maximum disk space taken by
access logs, If exceeds Oldest file will be deleted
nsslapd-accesslog-logminfreediskspace: 5 <--------- minimum free disk in
MB, If goes below this Oldest file will be deleted
