You can do this using crontab job scheduling.

You need to create script for it with below steps.

1. Define shall.

2. Create if condition with file size

3. If it matches criteria rename file.
4. Create new file with touch command.

5: complete file with exit 0

6: schedule cronjob with specific time like every day at 1: 00 AM

You need to also restart specific services for this which use this file.

The servcie is the sesagentd service.

However, running liveupdate on the  SSIM server must fix the  issue. The systemerr.log file would then not grow.
