urldiag.txt is filling up space



User wants to know what is "urldiag.txt" and where is this setting that is collecting so much data every other day that this file increases up to 15-16 GB filling up the file system and hence crashing the app. They are in a clustered environment and this file is getting created on both the servers and getting to a huge size. This file is not there in prod and or dev which is good,
this is only happening in stage but so frequently that it takes down the app which "No Space left on the device".

<env name="initialization/urlrrwriter" value="urldiag.txt"/>
