I've seen this or read about this and I think these are artifacts from EAS processes that never complete. Were you doing something like an export (that 2 gig file seems awfully like the 2 gig export file limit) that didn't complete all the way for some reason? Can you go back to the app log or Essbase log on those dates and see what was happening at that time?1 person found this helpful
I know that when you put a BSO database into archive mode Essbase will right a file to the database directory indicating the locks (I think I am remembering this correctly) but you're looking in the application folder, so I don't think that holds true.
It might be worth skimming through the log for that app and seeing what essbase activity was going on at that time1 person found this helpful
I'm having the necessary technical people try to restore the logs from July now. I'll post when I have something. Thanks for the input!
Just wanted to post and say that I found the culprit - LCM. For some odd reason, when we kick off LCM backups at night, the data exports as these temp files then never gets erased.
Here's the LCM definition I was using (in case anyone was curious):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Package name="web-migration" description="Migrating Product to File System">
<Credentials user="batchuser" password="my password"/><LOCALE>en_US</LOCALE>
<ConnectionInfo name="MyHSS-Connection1" type="HSS" description="Hyperion Shared Service connection"/>
<ConnectionInfo name="FileSystem-Connection1" type="FileSystem" description="File system connection" HSSConnection="MyHSS-Connection1" filePath="D:/BACKUP/LCM/ESSAPP_AppName_deployment_metadata_MigrationDefinition"/>
<ConnectionInfo name="AppConnection2" type="Application" product="ESBAPP" project="EssbaseCluster-1" application="AppName" HSSConnection="MyHSS-Connection1" description="Source Application"/>
<Artifact recursive="true" parentPath="/Configuration" pattern="*"/>
<Artifact recursive="true" parentPath="/Substitution Variables" pattern="*"/>
<Artifact recursive="true" parentPath="/Databases" pattern="*"/>
I spend the same. The solution to the problem was to review the logs of the application and change the password of the user that these files were being generated. I never knew the reason of the problem.
