Dollar Universe logging question: Origin of *_job files created in $UXDIN directory

  • 1.  Dollar Universe logging question: Origin of *_job files created in $UXDIN directory

    Posted 11-26-2019 10:53 AM
    Hello all,

    I have recently noticed files that are bigger and bigger in $UXDIN directory of a windows Integration node ($U version 6;0.*).

    These file seem to contain lanch parameters and read like this:

    [{"ident":{"task":{"name":"SJSEM00010","label":"batch-atosxerox-launcher","mu":"SV0264"},"parent_task":{"name":"SJSEM00010","label":"batch-atosxerox-launcher","mu":"SV0264"},"session":{"name":"SJSEM00010","version":"001"},"uproc":{"name":"SJSEM0001D","version":"001"},"node_origin":"SV0264.","numordart_se":1},"exec":

    I would like to know if anyone can tell me what can generate these files ?
    I have been looking for pieces of information in the official documentation, in the node parameters, U_ANTE |U_POST_UPROC files  to no avail

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Regards,

    Toni

    Hello Toni,
    those files are created by the fact that there is a  Dollar Universe Explorer declared on your UVMS.
    By default, the nodes will try to send information to Dollar Universe Explorer upon job execution, in case DUX is not reachable, they will write those into this DATE_job files.
    You can delete them whenever you want to, they are not necessary.
    Cheers,
    Adrian

    Hello Adrian,

    Thanks a lot for your answer. We do have a $U Explorer declared in UVMS but it is not even started. It has been installed few months ago, but was never started

    Regards,

    Hi Toni, that is exactly why the node creates this file containing all executions each day.
    If you are not using DUX anymore, I would suggest you to uninstall it so that these files do not get created anymore.
    For the time being, launch a maintenance uproc on all your servers to remove the files *_job inside each data/area folder like the following:

    rm -rf $UXDEX/*_job
    rm -rf $UXDIN/*_job
    rm -rf $UXDSI/*_job
    rm -rf $UXDAP/*_job
