Ohhh. But see, it's *supposed* to log every time someone logs in via sshd or

report who last logged in and when. The underlying question is not "how to
stop sshd from loggiing", but "why is it filling wtmp?"
Why *is* it filling up? Don't you rotate that on a daily or weekly basis, or
is it on a really tiny and over-crowded partition, or what? wtmp is known to
be a very inefficient way of recording this information, but it's old and
familiar and robust, so you may not want to disable it entirely.
