HOLY C**P!!!! Something is seriously looping on your system. The 501 console log is your system console log. On a healthy user (i.e. non server) system the console should generate about 400 Mb a year. (EDIT: And even then it is automatically deleted every month if automated maintenance is being run.)
Delete the file. The .0 on the end means it is a rotated file being kept for looking at older events. Look on your current console.log and see if you are getting some event repeating over and over.
I can not stress this enough, a 70Gb log file means there is something extremely wrong going on. Most likely something caught in an infinite loop sending to the log.

No problem. At a guess whatever was generating the messages stopped when you rebooted. That file is so big though I would not even attempt to open it. A Gb or two and we might have tried tail to look at the end, but that is scary big for a log.
