MySQL bin logs can consume a lot of disk space. Many people like myself try to minimize the amount of disk space that is allocated to Linux servers to reduce cost. When MySQL logs start to build, disk space can be consumed quickly. Admittedly, one of my Ubuntu Linux MySQL servers was approaching 100% disk utilization. After searching for large directories and large files, I discovered that /var/lib/mysql contained an abundance of log files. This is how to disable MySQL log files. MySQL log files can provide value but since my MySQL server is well-tuned, I preferenced the available disk space over continuing to collect MySQL log files.
