/tmp dump

Every once in a while (I'm not sure how often) my /tmp directory gets dumped. This makes sense, I was just wondering how to change how often it happens. I am not restarting/shutting down my computer for the dump to happen.
Where is a foo.config that sets this?

Its probably a cron job. Look for executable files in /etc/cron.daily/hourly/monthly
cd /etc/cron.hourly
or do
#crontab -l
as root.
