As nobody has answered this yet, try adding this to /etc/crontab:

# every day at 4:40 am
40 4 * * * root perl /usr/lib/interchange/bin/expireall -r

*if* the reason for your site growing is the session/temp files,try
running expireall manually once, if that frees up the expected amount of
disk space, you've struck gold. If not, it still doesn't harm to clean
up the sessions daily.
