Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You have configured Crawl as per the instructions in the System Administrator's Guide, and after a few days you notice that the files on the temporary directory (<SDD_HOME>/components/bisearch/archive/webcat/ssi/en) are not purged and are using a lot of disk space:

$ cd <SDD_HOME>/components/bisearch/archive/webcat/ssi/en
$ ls -l
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 2 11:25 1512020578353
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 5 08:05 1512106984626
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 1 23:43 1512193390986
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 2 23:43 1512279798481
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 3 23:43 1512366204260
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 4 23:43 1512452609538
drwxr-x--- 3 abc abc 3864 Jan 8 18:00 1512539120180

Is there a setting to clear this automatically?
