    GL_TOP/out directory

    Shaik

      Hi All

       

      Environment:

       

      Apps: 11.5.9

      DB:9.2.0.3

      OS: RHEL AS3

       

      Here my doubt is

       

      GL_TOP/out is 6 Gb

      INV_TOP/out is 4 Gb

       

      AU_TOP/forms is 6 Gb

       

      Is files under GL_TOP/out and INV_TOP/out safely can purge, please suggest

       

      Is AU_TOP/forms 6 Gb is normal behavior in 11.5.9, please suggest

       

      Regards

      Shaik

          Hi,

           

          The size of the log and out directories can grow if you do not purge the requests regularly. The sizes you have are large and indicate that it has been a long time since last purge took place.

          You should run the request "Purge Concurrent Request and/or Manager Data" and provide a criteria to purge old requests (30 days, for example).

          It will take care of the data stored in the database and in the file system.

           

          The files under $AU_TOP/forms are usually several gigabytes in size and should NOT be deleted (unless they are custom forms you developed and no longer needed).

           

          Regards,
