Log file is filling up on Windows

Recently I had 2 systems that have been syncing for 11 months have their log files fill up.

The log file grew to over 100GB in one day, deleting the file and recreating it fills it up again.

The log files fill up with the following content:

Is there a way to set the log file to append every let’s say 6 hours or so.

Can you open an issue on github?

Actually, this doesn’t add up. It’s ~206 bytes every 5mins, which is 60kb a day.

Something else is up… Does the logging start happening more often or something?
