Nginx creating a huge "off" file

Hey guys,

I couldn't find much about this in the docs or Google, could just be due to its name... anyways, in the root nginx dir, nginx creates this "off" file. It slowly gets huge and ended up eating all the disk space on my drive.

1) Is there any documentation as to what this file is?
2) Can I control how big it gets?
3) What's it for?
