    ****************************************************************
    Application Servers, Node Agents, Deployment Managers, and
    several administrative utilities are launched within OSGi
    frameworks. When OSGi detects changes to the bundles
    provisioned by a framework instance it creates temporary files
    within the framework's configuration area while updating its
    bundle configuration. OSGi deletes these temporary files
    during the normal shutdown of a framework instance, which
    affords their accumulation whenever framework instances run
    for long periods or shutdown abrubtly (e.g., long-running or
    killed Application Server processes.)
    The accumulation of OSGi temporary files can be prevented by
    configuring OSGi property "osgi.embedded.cleanupOnSave=true",
    which causes OSGi to clean up (delete) temporary files
    immediately upon updating its bundle configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Apply APAR PI96616 to configure OSGi property
    osgi.embedded.cleanupOnSave=true in the OSGi frameworks
    underlying servers and administative utilities in order
    to prevent the accumulation of temporary files within
    server and profile OSGi configuration areas.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.8.  Please refer to the Recommended
