[Java] JBoss AS 7: How to clean up tmp?



Answers

Files related for deployment (and others temporary items) are created in standalone/tmp/vfs (Virtual File System). You may add a policy at startup for evicting temporary files :

-Djboss.vfs.cache=org.jboss.virtual.plugins.cache.IterableTimedVFSCache 
-Djboss.vfs.cache.TimedPolicyCaching.lifetime=1440
Question

I noticed that in my JBoss Application Server 7 installation under standalone/tmp I have 400 MB of files related to past deployments, some of them a few months old.

How is it cleaned up? Should it happen automatically? Is there a tool for it? Can I just remove all those files myself?
