[root@gqac022 AUTH_test]# du -h tmp/

tmp directory contains incompletely uploaded files. So, having them is waste of storage. We should come up with the scheme to periodically delete the contents of tmp directory.
Comment 2 Peter Portante 2012-11-14 11:50:22 EST
This bug will most likely be fixed as a result of fixing https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=876660. Since I am working on that, I'll take this bug as well.
Comment 3 Peter Portante 2012-11-19 17:05:38 EST
We should probably not being using a single temporary directory for all temp file creations on volume, but just create temporary files locally. And the temp file should be auto-deleted on clean-up if it fails to be renamed (if we don't already do that, or should be fixed if that is not working correctly).
Comment 4 Junaid 2013-04-03 06:41:36 EDT
Patch submitted upstream. With this fix, there won't be any tmp directory at all.
Comment 5 Peter Portante 2013-04-03 10:20:39 EDT
Not only do we need to consider Comment 3, but we need to be sure these temp files are not presented as objects in container *and* directory object listings.
