Is there any impact if the files in the Log/ Cache folder are deleted?

Dear All,

We are working on BODS v4.1 SP2 and it looks like some log files in the application server are taking about 30GB of space.

The folder path on the server is

Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Data Services\Log\Cache


and the 4 files are named


PPF_file_21_116_56_1761_1_0_21

PPF_file_21_116_56_1761_1_1_21

PPF_file_21_116_56_1761_1_2_21

PPF_file_21_116_56_1761_1_3_21


Will there be any impact if these files are deleted from the above folder? Anybody has come across this issue before?


Thank you!

Sriram.

Hi,

Whats the file extension - .dmp?

Yes you can delete those. You can also turn off and manage the size in DSConfig.txt file.

Hi Arun,

There is no file extension. The file type is file in the properties.

Thank you,

Hi Sriram,

Log files are generally .txt which won't occupy much space. But .dmp files occupy huge amount of space and is better to remove it once in a while. Both log and dmp files can be removed to free the disk space. The files in pcache folder are used while running the job because your jobs are executed with pageable cache and not in-memory, hence those files are needed while running the job.
