Inodes Limit Exceeded

We are generating an astronomical number of files in mfs://var/mapr/local/${node}.example.com/logs/mapred/userlogs, where $node is any and all of our computational nodes. We're receiving inote limit exceeded alarms on a regular basis, and the userlogs directory is so full of files that building a directory listing takes several minutes.

I work around this issue by simply deleting old userlogs, but this seems excessive. Is there an automated process I can activate to deal with this problem? If not, then why not? Can anything be done to mitigate this issue or prevent it from happening in the first place?
