I think that Murray already commented on this.

The log should not grow that fast unless it is a busy system. There
are a few operations mentioned in other messages which can cause more problems.

The system startup would start only one instance of OpenDKIM. I
cannot tell from the information available how it got two instances
running. I suggest than you ensure than Postfix is running
correctly, without OpenDKIM, and that the the log works correctly
before proceeding further. Verify that you don't have OpenDKIM
running starts to get the system as it was previously.
