    These directories use a lot of memory on the disk and in some cases they fill the entire disc.

    Hi Lorenzo,

     

    I believe these are the docker-compose temp folders/files being created. This is a known issue with the GA build of Portal 4.0. It is addressed in later versions.

     

    They can be safely removed with the following:

     

    cd /root
    rm -rf _MEI*

     

    Then restart the systemd service for the apim-portal by "systemctl restart apim-portal".

     

    Regards,

    Joe
