maxclientscheck "servernmane" has exceeded the Max

ok, i never seen such message befor.
Can anyone please tell me what this messages means and what is to do?
---------
IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
&Apache has reached the MaxClients
&limit. cPanel has increased the MaxClients limit to 200 (10 higher).
&
&You may wish to suspend the user with the largest access log as they
&are generally the person using up all of the avalible connections. However,
&your should
&have your system admin verify this first.
&
&Top 3 Largest access logs
&====================================
&339564 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domainname.com
&126480 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domainname.com
&119336 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domainname.com
------------------------

Think yep no problem i will go to clean domlog.... but.....
seems really there is no way to clean domlogs via SSH ...or, in other words cleaning it out , all data are still there... they are also there afhter restart the server.... :(

This is not the firts time i clean domlogs... so nothing new .. but now... what is to do?

Can anyone tell me also how to clean definitly domlogs?


Thanks

Although I've never gotten that type of msg. it would seem that Cpanel has done some basic Administration for you.

As every Server has a default limit for maximum connections at one time, it would seem yours was reached. In order to allow more connections the &MaxClient& limit had to be increased -- else visitors to any site on the Server would receive an error msg. -- &Temporaily Overloaded& or something similar.

Not being aware of this feature, I am glad to hear it is there and results are sent, so a person knows what's going on.

I have received this on occasion from several of our servers. Check your server logs for a 'mini' attack (for lack of a better word). We've seen these on several servers. Will probably look something like:
