You can turn all the logs off by editing /etc/syslog.conf (using exec.php)

I guess you could create a udp socket to a remote syslog server, then echo
all the logs to the socket instead.

As far as I know, m0n0wall does not store it's logs on the CF card. It's a
rotating memory only syslog application. You cannot disable the local logs I
think, but since this is memory only, it should not wear out your CF. 

Remote syslogging can be enabled in the Diagnostics -> Log -> Settings page.
