    Question

    Can large files under /srv/exlibris/crn/arc3_1/c8/temp/ be deleted?


    Examples of file names:

    -rw-rw-r-- 1 crn exlibris 1308628 Jul 2 11:23 uda13727784630
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 crn exlibris 6306339312 Jul 2 11:50 uda13727801240
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 crn exlibris 17883986032 Jul 2 11:55 uda13727800130
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 crn exlibris 476315648 Jul 2 12:09 uda13727805320

    Answer

    Yes, we recommend to clean up the temp directory regularly, as follows:

    1. Stop ARC (csh -f arc_shutdown)
    2. Cleanup the /c8/temp directory (especially huge uda files) manually

    Additional Information

    The files under the temp/ directory are temporary and are created as swap files while running large reports.
    Sometimes these files are not cleaned up automatically. In this case they should be cleaned up manually.

    In case of disk space issues, define the temp directory location in a different disc (temp directory is defined in the Cognos configuration).
