Use "svndamin list-unused-dblogs" to get a list of log files that you
can safely remove.

Why? What platform are you using?

The only way is to split your repository into smaller pieces. But
Berkeley DB can handle very large repositories easily, so this shouldn't
be a problem.

You can make incremental backups with "svnadmin dump --incremental", and
hot backups with "svnadmin hotcopy". Or use "svnadmin hotcopy
--clean-logs" to create a backup of the repository and remove unused log
files at the same time.
