Server space - temp folder deletion
What will be standard list of files in /tmp folder that can be cleaned up as part of a regular restart process? We already do a deletion of Extractmarker.txt file
The issue that we face is that the /apps/data/pega/tmp folder gets filled up and occupies huge amount of disk space. The PassivationData file in the tmp folder takes the bulk of space. As the space gets filled up quickly, we had to manually passivation data manually to a different server/folder. The passivationdata deletion is not recommended per information received from forums

It is advisable not to delete the temporary files directory. Most files in the ServiceExport directory are deleted promptly after the associated upload, download, or other processing operation on the file completes, for space and security reasons.
Although not needed in ordinary system operations, you can delete (reinitialize to empty) the static content directories by using the System Management application.
Alternatively, deleting the extract marker file on a node causes the system to clear this directory (and others) during the next system startup.
