File Uploads Quickly Fills Up All Available Disk Space on WebCenter Portal Server (Doc ID 1909226.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.7.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

WebCenter Portal may cause the hosting server to run out of physical disk space as the /tmp/uploader* files which are created as part of the document upload process are not properly deleted after the file upload has completed.

In problematic WebCenter Portal environments, there will be many /tmp/uploader* files present in the /tmp folder that are never deleted by WebCenter Portal.
