Defect
Root Cause: It was introduced by Dollar Universe 6.2.41, so only the versions 6.2.4x and 6.3.01 are concerned.
Resolution:
After upgrading the node, the job logs will be properly archived.
However, job logs that should have been archived in the past and the previous archive folders are not deleted, so they will have to be removed manually.
The archive joblogs are directories that have the name starting by dulogs*
Therefore, they can be removed via a simple rm when being on the folder:

rm -rf $UNI_DIR_LOG/AREA/dulogs*

Being AREA: app or int or sim or exp.
