Mysql General log 24GB?

Received a drive space alert today for one of my pbx’s. Walked through the file system and found out the /var/lib/myslq/myslq/general_log.CSV is 16GB in size. What could have created this file?

Assuming the last part of the name is correct, unlike the directories, it will have been created by MySQL, the database engine.

It appears to be purely diagnostic and not critical to actual operation.

yeah but it’s not a table, it’s an actual csv file… never seen that before (that I remember) with MySQL

It’s still a table, but without any indexing; MySQL will treat it as a table At least that is what the articles I quoted say.
