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.


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.
