MongoDB. Growing local.X files

I have a ReplicaSet with MongoDB 2.0.2 on two Debian Linux 6.0 servers. The ReplicaSet is working fine. But on one of the servers I realized that there are a bunch of local.x files.

  • local.0
  • local.1
  • local.22.

Each of them 2.1 GB. The actual database/collections are less than 1 GB. I am just wondering why there are all this files and taking more than 40 GB space ??

On a dedicated server with 800 GB this is not a big deal, but on a small VServer with 60GB HD this could be a huge problem!

If somebody have the same problem and an solution for it, please let me know!
