Disksize of the /usr/local/pem/var/cores/ directory used by PPA is growing up.


This happens due to failed tasks. When some task failed, the agent core dump will be created and placed to this directory:

[root@server ~]# ll -h /usr/local/pem/var/cores/
total 62M
drwxr-x--- 2 root    psaadm   4.0K Jul 16 12:17 archives
-rw------- 1 pemuser pemgroup  69M Sep  3 23:46 core.1222
-rw------- 1 pemuser pemgroup  68M Sep  4 10:50 core.18348
-rw-r--r-- 1 root    root      866 Jul 16 12:17 migration.log

If you have a lot of failed tasks under the Scheduled tasks tab in the Task Manager, this directory will take a lot of diskspace.


You should get rid of failed tasks either by fixing the root cause of the failure or just cancel tasks. Once it has done, you can clean up the /usr/local/pem/var/cores/ directory from core dump files.
