More an d more garbage files in ./rt2/WebRT/sessiondata

We have setup and running RT2 since about two
months. Now we have discovered that about 500
files per day are created in the sessiondata
directory. Aparently these files never get
removed. The following output may give an idea
of the kind of files which fill up the session-
data directory:

WebRT/sessiondata# ls -alF adb669ef78e0b4566745e6adaebb2982
-rw------- 1 wwwrun nogroup 0 Aug 16 20:16
Apache-Session-adb669ef78e0b4566745e6adaebb2982.lock
-rw------- 1 wwwrun nogroup 56 Aug 16 20:16
adb669ef78e0b4566745e6adaebb2982

Is this a bug, a failour with our local installation
or is this a feature? Would it be safe to delete
all these files?

Thanks,

Ruben

It’s documented in the README:

Additionally, you should set up a cron job to remove stale session data.

!!!
WARNING: Don’t install this cron job or run this find command if your
MASON_SESSION_PATH (known in config.pm as $MasonSessionDir)
points to a directory that could EVER contain any file that’s not
a Apache::Session datafile.
!!!

Every hour, nuke session files and lockfiles that haven’t been

touched in 10 hours

0 * * * * find /path/to/rt2/WebRT/sessiondata -type f -amin +600 -exec rm {}

Have you read the FAQ? The RT FAQ Manager lives at http://fsck.com/rtfm

Hi All,
Rather than reinvent the wheel does anyone know of a good users guide for
RT already out there? Naturally it will have to be adapted to the
situation but basically a beginners level user manual?

Alan

Hi Alan.

I can forward you the one I compiled for our company. It is in Word format with screenshots etc.

I adapted it from the RTFM pages and added and deleted some stuff.

Let me know if you want me to send it to you. Its +/- 1.2MB in size

Rehan van der Merwe

Hi,

Maybe you could send it to the list, or send a link to it.
I have a small user guide too, but it is in French. Yours could be a
starting point for a new, enhanced, guide

Hello,

I would also be greatly interested in the two documents you talked about
(english and french) manuals.

If you could put them somewhere on the www or send them directly to me I would
be really grateful.

Thanks in advance.

And thanks to all for these. I recommended and installed RT for a company
but only learned enough about it to get it working for them. Now I’ve
gone to work for them (do you think they were so impressed with RT they
hired me? :slight_smile: and I’m going to have to, not only use RT, but probably
change/re-configure the setup some. This will make it much easier.

Well the last three or four months worth of saved RT list messages will
help too so thanks to all on the list also.
