The perl version of simfactory always uses the debugging loglevel for simulations. The loglevel of a cactus simulation can be specified by setting -L to a value between 0 (none) and 3 (debug). While the cactus default is 0, simfactory sets it to 3. The debug loglevel could lead to huge output files.
I would suggest to set it to the cactus default, and allow a user to increase it.
