Our tools like dsreplication, dsconfig, setup, status, etc all log to temporary files.

It is possible to change the location of those temporary files by setting java.io.tmpdir, and it is possible to configure the log level in the files using a custom properties file.

But it is not (apparently) possible to prevent the files from appearing at all.

This is a problem if a monitoring system is running `dsreplication status` periodically, as the tmpdir will eventually fill up with opends-replication-*.log files. This caused one customer to run out of inodes in their tmpdir.

I believe that due to the changes made as part of OPENDJ-2436 (fixVersion 3.0.0), this issue can be closed.

Comment by Matthew Swift [ 07/Nov/19 ]

Moved to closed state because the fixVersion has already been released.
