Hi Team,

In one of production server we noticed that large number of empty files are being created in the Var directory causing the low inodes available problem(/var/lib/dynatrace/oneagent/agent/config).

Files name contains as below::

-rw------- 1 root root 0 Month Date 00:00 DumpProcSingleInstance_XXXXXXXXXXXXX_XXXXX

Can you please suggest what these files are and why they are creating and how to avoid these..?

Quick response is much appreciated.

Those files are creating and updating because of gc capturing mechanism. In Appmon(Appmon agent which is made based on OneAgent) there is debug flag to disable it (if this is making problems for example with iops). If it’s mandatory for you to disable this, I suggest support ticket.
