It is the before image file. You may have a hung transaction if it keeps
growing. Do a DB shutdown then proutil mfgsys -C truncate bi.

It's the buffer file, buffers all frequently accessed files, if they run a
truncate .bi command it will cut it back down but then there will be more
hits on the DB vs the buffer, and IIRC the Buffer access rate is quicker.
