XSIBackup more and more tmp directories

I'm using XSIBackup-DC 1.1.1.2 it is installed on VMware 6.7.0 Update 3 (Build 14320388)
In xsibackup.conf I configured
pri_tmp_dir=/vmfs/volumes/system/tmp

after running a XSIBackup Job I can find the Directory
/vmfs/volumes/system/tmp/xsi   with Access flags : drwxrwxrwx

below this Directory there are many directories like:
2177484
2177455
2177425
….

All directories are empty.

Is it my Task to delete them before running a new XSIBackup Job?
many thanks
Rolf

Re: XSIBackup more and more tmp directories

They are genarally wiped by the clean up routine. Should you run some tests, interrupt execution or receive some segfault, they might remain in there. You can safely delete anything inside the tmp dirs except while some job is running.

Re: XSIBackup more and more tmp directories

Yesterday I removed all directories in tmp Today night a backup was planned which runs without Errors.
No I can see 45 directories remaining in {pri_tmp_dir}/xsi and also 45 directories in ../xsibackup/tmp
All directories have no entires. the secondary temp Directory is empty.

My configuration is:
# Primary temp dir
pri_tmp_dir=/vmfs/volumes/system/tmp

# Secondary temp dir
alt_tmp_dir=/vmfs/volumes/daten/tmp

Re: XSIBackup more and more tmp directories

It isn't a big deal just as long as everything else is working fine. What FS are you using to save your backup repos?, do not use VMFS, it is not optimized to store deduplicated repos, use some ext4 or XFS over IP if possible or attached through NFS.
