I'm working on a project for a customer with a large database file. The data file (the solution uses a separation model) contains locally stored containers with a lot of images stored within. In total the data file is 8.12 gb.
I have the files hosted on my local install of FileMaker Server 13.
I got a message this morning from a bash script I have running in the background that my primary drive was running out of space. I ran a GrandPerspective scan and found that I have two copies of the data file in tomcat temp directories:
My assumption was that the files where similar to OS swap files and, therefore, I could turn off the server and they would be cleared out. This is not the case.
A couple of questions:
- What are these files used for exactly?
- Is there a safe way of deleting them via the Admin Console?
- If there's not a safe way of deleting them via the Admin Console, will it break anything if I just remove them by hand via the command line?
