Remote Document Generation – server cleanup


The RPE 1.2 WebServices ships with improved cleanup facilities. As an administrator you have now the ability to choose when results will expire from the server.

The RPE 1.2 WebService is a much tidier tool than its 1.1.2.x counterparts. Unless an error occurs during the document generation, or the com.ibm.rational.rpe.remote.debug is defined for the server, the RPE WebService will automatically delete all the the temporary files created during the document generation.

In addition to this the WebService will now also delete the result and log files from the server at specified intervals. The RPE Administrator can control this behavior though the RPE Monitor&Control Administrative Interface.

The documents Clean-up link brings forward this dialog:

monitorControlDocCleanup

By default all documents ( result archives and logs) older than 7 days are deleted from the server. The cleanup is performed at the interval specified by the “Clean-up interval” and by is set to run once a day. Both values and their time units can be changed as needed.

You can request the RPE WebService to verify and delete older documents immediately through “Save changes and run now” button. This action ignores the clean-up interval values but will still use the document age values.

  1. I may be late in reaching to this information, but its never late to implement it. We had a huge problems of clean up in 1112 and few times a server out of disk in the past. Good to see it will be web based administration and control and auto cleanup.
