looks important:
http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/rml

i think those files are used by autocad and are drawings of something;
the server might not have autocad installed, so there's no application to open them by default, but someone else who does access those files might.

i doubt very much they should be deleted.

You are correct in saying they are produced by the SQL RML utilities. Normally used for performance testing etc on a new server.

They are essentially like trace files which can be read by a few different GUI apps like Nexus.

There should be no issues if you remove them

The readtrace command line tool which comes with the RML utilites fires up a reporter GUI at the end of it reading the trace files which is almost identical to Nexus. Ive not used it extensively to be honest, just had a little mess about with it a couple of months ago.
