Hey guys,

Recently I've had an issue with hitting an inode limit in my /tmp folder.
Searching Google I've found that it could be session files, etc.

The thing is the only files I have in /tmp are files in the format "tmp*******"

I've got files ranging from

tmp0015EN
all the way to
tmpz_zz_N

Does anyone know where these "tmp*******" files are coming from?

Yeah hard to say. You can look at the contents of one of those files and perhaps something in it will give an indication as to what they are from.

Hello @jamesgrabatin,

The contents of the files may give you some indication of the source. There are a couple of tips on the following thread you may also find useful:
