Opened: Jul 23, 2021
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

After restarting the ilx plugin, new tmplugin_ilx_rpc_* stat files are being created, but old files are not being deleted.

Impact

The presence of too many of these leftover files might prevent merged from rolling up stats and providing graphs and cause such errors: err merged[8523]: 011b0900:3: TMSTAT error tmstat_remerge: Cannot allocate memory.

Conditions

- ilx configured - ilx plugin restarted

Workaround

Delete stale tmplugin_ilx_* files manually

Fix Information

None
