SWG Analytics (running through the antserver daemon) creates a large temporary file in the /tmp directory due to a lack of write permissions on the appropriate directory.


/tmp is temporarily populated with a large file that might fill up the directory if it is already close to capacity.

There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

System now writes to /shared/tmp/ant_server so that it no longer writes to /tmp, so the issue no longer occurs.
