Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2021
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.8 and later
NetworkManager does not clear out created network devices ( if ) from /run, normally this should work fine if we have not so many network devices created

Hence issue raise after some time in /run and make it 'grow'
