On AIX, Centrify debug log rolls over approximately every 5MBs. Is it possible to change this value?
Yes.  The addebug script can be modified to increase the size of the file before is will be rotated
As root, edit /usr/share/centrifydc/bin/addebug script and look for the line below.
The 5m refers to 5 MBs (default).
 # Enable log rotation
            CDC_LOG_OPTIONS="\trotate size 5m files 5 compress"
This value can be changed to the desired value such as "50m" or "100m".
