can we able to remove the /opt/atlassian/jira/temp/ files or not?

I have a Data Center with 2 servers / nodes, in Node2 I have a filesystem alarm in / opt / atlassian / jira / temp
And inside that directory there are files snapshot *, temporary_ * .part, plugin_ * .obr, plugin_ * .jar,
jruby- * and JIRA-avatar * .png

My question is, can these files be deleted with Jira stopped in that Node2 or should the entire application be stopped in both Nodes to free up space?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.

These are local to the node in question, so you can stop a node and remove them.

The question is "why" though?  What are you trying to achieve by deleting these files?

Hi Nic;

The question is that I get the typical alarm of a possible problem in the indexing in the Troubleshooting and support tools section.
And that is the reason for wanting to delete the files within that directory, the option to expand the FileSystem, currently in our Jira is not viable.

On the other hand thanks for the answer.

Best regards.

By the way, we have a couple of adaptive plug-ins installed in our Jira.

Ok, the temp directory has nothing to do with indexing so you're not going to fix anything by doing this.  But it won't do any harm either.

But Jira is telling so:

Low disk space on device containing temporary directory (/usr/local/jira/temp) - 1 GB of free space remaining. Index backup and recovery may fail.

That doesn't have a lot to do with deleting files from temporary spaces.  

The message is telling you that the system is low on space on the disk that holds the temporary directories.  You need to fix that by giving it more space or deleting other stuff.

If you just clear out the temp directory, yes, you'll reclaim the disk space.  Then when you restart Jira, it will just recreate most, if not all, of the files you deleted, because it needs them to work.

You need to give it more disk space in another way.
