Is the data file that is growing or the log file?

Which log level have you set in statistics?

PS: thread has been moved to vCenter forum.

Is this a large scale enterprise deployment ? How many hosts and VMs do you have on the VC? Nevertheless, 10 Gigs per day sounds alarming.

Statistics level is TOO high.

Put to 2 or 1 (for month and year).
