Dear all,

On a 19.1 galaxy version, my job_working_directory (database/ jobs_directory) contains a dir named _cleared_contents which continuously growing in terms of size…

What is the exact process run by Galaxy to move a job from database/ jobs_directory/000/… to database/ jobs_directory/_cleared_contents

Is there any configuration (in galaxy.yml) to manage this process?


Can I delete this directory regularly or do I need to be careful of unfinished job already present in this specific dir (_cleared_contents)?


Thank you very much for your reply

Kindly regards
