Why are there SO many log files? 

My system was slowing down, so I went looking for stuff that seemed odd or oversized... and I found approximately 90,000 log files!  Consuming approximately 1.2GB.  Why?  I started deleting them, but only got down to 45,000 before I gave up.  Very tiresome.  I will delete more later.  I assume it is safe to delete log files.

Why is the program keeping so many of them, and why not find some way to automatically remove them as time goes by...???

What a pain!

You can delete LOG.old.* files (these are database debug logs), you shouldn't delete *.log files (these are write-ahead transaction logs, contain data that is not flushed to SST table yet and used to recover in case of a system crash).

I deleted them all.  There were hundreds of the .log files, but far more of the log.old files.  I wonder why there would be transactions unwritten to the SST files?  That seems odd to me.  I always finish up my work with a minimax and make sure the I/O has gone quiet before exiting the program.  Seems plenty of time to "flush" the transactions to the SST files.

Oh well, I guess I am in for it now.  Since I did delete all the ".log", "log.old", and plain "log" files.

I believe "Compress" also reduces the number of logs considerably
