    oversized ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\temp

    Johnny Huang

      Hi team,


        My Tableau Server 8.2 runs on a Windows 2008 R2 VM with 150GB of HDD.


        It runs out of HDD space almost every 4 days and upon inspection it is the [ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\temp] folder that is taking up almost 100-110GB of space.


        I know I can run the tabadmin cleanup command (but only if Tableau Server is stopped) which cleans out this folder.  However, is there a way I can stop it, or at least put a upper constraint on how much space the temp folder can take up?


        I scanned through the Admin documentation & while different levels of logging can be set to minimise space used, none of the logging options pertain to this 'temp' folder.


        Can someone help?  I really can't be restarting Tableau Server every night just to run the cleanup command.


        Thanks in advance
