filter log files keep growing till they overflow the disk

(1/2) > >>

This is happened twice in the past month. Log files in /var/log/filter grow and take over the entire disk. 

1) what subsystem is creating the log entries (shown below) in such volume? Is this a bug or a mistake I made?
2) what tool in opnsense cleans up log files and why didn't it detect the growth of these files and remove them before they overflowed the file system?

Under System -> Settings -> Logging -> Preserve logs (Days) what do you have there? Some have stated the default changed to 31 days with the 22.* series. Some have needed to decrease this to 7 days or less.

thanks!  what subsystem is generating these logs?

that one looks like a firewall rule log entry.

System : Setting: Logging,  disable logging of allowed packets to if not needed
