Can all log files be deleted in log folder ?

Is it safe to delete SAP data services log files stored in below paths:

C:\ProgramData\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services\log\<job server>\ -- This one contains many server_eventlog.txt.idx files--not sure what there are

C:\ProgramData\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services\log\<job server>\<repo db> ---

This has error/monitor/trace log, both in .txt and idx format. The logs are not needed now but I wish to cross check before deleting them.

    Yes, it is.

    In fact, trace, they will be deleted automatically after a while. The default retention period is 30 days. You can change that setting in the CMC: Applications > Data Services Application > Settings.
