These directories use a lot of memory on the disk and in some cases they fill the entire disc.
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 /rootrm -rf _MEI*
Then restart the systemd service for the apim-portal by "systemctl restart apim-portal".
