TRAC - something is clearing /tmp


Hi guys,

For some reason, my users are complaining that TRAC - our bug systems is throwing errors when looking for its module templates. These templates are usually built by Apache when it restarts or reloads and it puts them in /tmp/.python_eggs

I did a df-h and the drives had plenty of space, but the concerning thing is tmpfs shows 0% used.. We have not had a power outage or or restart in over a few months.

I thought perhaps TMPwatch is clearing though, but there are no logged messages in the logs.

Check your cron jobs. It is not uncommon for there to be jobs setup to clean /tmp periodically.
