Content Access Creates Lot Of Temp Files In The /tmp Folder (Doc ID 1996207.1)

Last updated on MAY 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Outside In Technology - Version 8.4.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On version 8.4.1 (or newer) of Outside In Content Access (CA) SDK, the symptom is the parser creates a lot of SSSxxxxx and IOCxxxxx files in the /tmp folder.  In one of our customer's cluster, that /tmp folder is filled with lot of SSSxxxxx and IOCxxxxx files.  Due to this, the cluster went down as there is low free disk space in /tmp folder.

Question 1:  Why are these files being created in /tmp folder and, if it is for temporary purposes, why are they not deleted?

Question 2:  Is there more guidance about how to set the SCCOPT_TEMPDIR or SCCOPT_REDIRECTTEMPFILE option?  What API is needed to use this option?  Sample code would be much appreciated.
