I have a java program running on virtual machines (RHEL5 & RHEL6) on a VMWare hypervisor. We are seeing random files / directories being created in /tmp folder on those virtual machines with the owner as the user under which the java program runs. What could be possible reasons for this behavior and how to troubleshoot it?
Which Java? Oracle Java? OpenJDK? JRockit? Which version? How did you install it? Imagine someone coming up to you and saying "yeah, Linux isn't working, what could be the reason?" Oh, okay. That narrows it down.
Not that you are going to get many answers in a user to user Java -programming- forum, your question is more suited for Redhat support or a Redhat tech forum.
