Gnocchi folder /var/lib/gnocchi/tmp

asked 2018-10-16 07:46:31 -0600

Hi All, I have a problem with the folder /var/lib/gnocchi/tmp on the controller. Gnocchi is configured but not active in our system but the folder receive/create a lot of file consuming all the file system inode ( 12000000 files!) . I dont have configured any metrics or policy , i suppose the files in /var/lib/gnocchi/tmp are necessary just to build metrics . I would know if is it save erasing all files inside the /var/lib/gnocchi/tmp or the are an alternative way to delete these files ( i've change change the metric_cleanup parameter on gnocchi.conf to activate the janitor but nothing is changed - fow waht i mean this parameter is uselfull to delete the metrics not used not files in tmp). Please help me .

Thanks in advance

You probably didn't disable the notification driver. How to Disable Notification Driver

If you're not using telemetry at all, it is safe to delete those files.
