    $TMPDIR filling up with ImageMagick files

    • Product: Rosetta
    • Product Version: 6.0

    Symptoms

    Server path /exlibris/dps/d4_1/tmp is filling with ImageMagick thumbnail files named like "magick-XXXXXXX".

    In some situations, ImageMagick is using environment variable  $TMPDIR and not the usual convert_temp directory (usually /operational_shared/operational_delivery_shared/convert_temp)

    Solution

    • setup a cron job to clean files from /exlibris/dps/d4_1/tmp older than x days  

    OR

    • change ImageMagick policy.xml file in /exlibris/product/ImageMagick-6.6.1-10/lib/ImageMagick-6.6.1/config/policy.xml, un-comment temporary-path resource  in <policymap> to:

      <policy domain="resource" name="temporary-path" value="/FULL PATH TO DESIRED DIRECTORY"/>
