Problem: /var/lib/pulp/tmp accumulates a number of files and it’s not clear how or when they should get cleaned up
Expected outcome: there is an automated or on-demand process to clear /var/lib/pulp/tmp
Foreman and Proxy versions: 3.2.1
Foreman and Proxy plugin versions: Katello 4.4.0
Distribution and version: CentOS 8 Stream
Other relevant data:
I recently shifted to “download immediate” on my CentOS repos, and was a bit surprised at how much extra disk space it took. Still, I was trying to find where I had opportunities to clean up, and found /var/lib/pulp/tmp. I had some files in there that were 6+ months old. I looked in this forum and online and didn’t find much to indicate how or where it could be cleaned. I did a foreman-maintain service stop, removed everything in that directory, and brought it back up, which worked. But should there be an automatic cleanup process for this directory?
