Back up and give us a better picture. We know what the pipe looks like, we need to see the full application.

Because of the size it's either a drain for the upper floor, or the main vent for the house. A toilet or single bathroom usually will use only a 2" vent.

Where does it go when it goes into that wall? Is that an exterior wall? Is it heading towards another bathroom/kitchen/whatever?

More to the point, what's the issue/question?
