You should have a look at the contents of the log file (for example tail -100 /tmp/cmdplugin.log). The contents may provide a clue as to some error condition that needs to be corrected or some program that is malfunctioning. You also should determine what program(s) are writing to this log.

Another possibility is that nothing it swrong but it has slowly grown large over a long period and needs to be reset or truncated occasionally. Hard to say without more information.
