C:\\Windows\\Temp\\Nuget Directory

Postby SteveGTR » Thu Dec 05, 2013 8:13 pm

We've been deploying often to our development website and database server. Today we encountered an out of disk space error from DM.

It turns out there was a bunch of disk space being used in the C:\\Windows\\Temp\\Nuget directory. I checked and each of our DM targets have all the deployment information in this directory under random folder names.

We remove all but the most current information for the target that was choking for disk space.

My questions are:

1) Can we delete the information in the C:\\Windows\\Temp\\Nuget directory without harming DM?

2) Why isn't DM doing this? Why must we manage this? Isn't there a better way?

Thanks again :)

Hi

We're sorry you've hit this problem. We utilize Nuget.Server in order to provide DM's embedded Nuget feed and it seems that this is filling-up the C:\\Windows\\Temp\\Nuget directory. We'd definitely like DM to clear this up automatically.

We're investigating whether this is a bug in NuGet.Server or whether we can persuade it to clear it's temp directory through the API. We'll give you an update when we've identified a fix.

Best regards,
Chris

Any update on this, as we've just discovered the same issue. Over 80GB of space taken up by the Nuget temp directory.

Note, this is the C:\\Windows\\Temp\\NuGet directory on the Deployment Agent, not the Deployment Manager, so not sure why it needs to host a NuGet server? Is this for when the Deployment Manager queries to see if the package already existing on the Agent?

Hi

Sorry about the delayed response. We've resolved the issue that was causing this directory to fill up and will release a fix in the next two weeks.

You'll need to clear out this directory manually initially, but following the release it should not fill up like this again.

Best regards,
Chris

Excellent. I've been cleaning it up nightly via a scheduled batch file.
