    Most probably it will a database that causing this issue. Try to identify which database is generating this temporary files and repair the database. - the name says it all!

    Here are some general tips for managing your /tmp folder.

    Run this command to clear old files from the /tmp folder:
    /usr/sbin/tmpwatch -am 6 /tmp

    That command will purge everything over 6 hours old.


    You will need to install tmpwatch before you can run the above command. Use the following command if tmpwatch is not already installed:
    yum install tmpwatch


    To list the largest files in the /tmp folder, run the following commands:
    cd /tmp
    ls -lSh . | head -5
