I'm afraid we don't have any way to do that at the moment. I just opened
a pull request [1] that makes it possible to not have anything logged at
all when a new dynamic block is inserted, but that's an all-or-nothing

Please open a feature request on GH if you would like to have the
truncation feature implemented.
