Last updated on MAY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 11.5.10.2 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The forms client process f60webmx writes numerous files to the /tmp directory.  These files can entirely fill the /tmp directory thereby stopping further E-Business Suite activity with error messages such as the following:

FRM-41839: Disk I/O error on temporary record buffer file

Changes

The /tmp directory is used in several different situations:
- When running long running queries
- Forms or Reports with lots of data
- When viewing a log file for a Concurrent Request a *.t file (example: OFkp7gMa.t) is generated.
