Since upgrading Alteryx Server Gallery to 2019.3.2.15763 the temp directory on our C drive (not the gallery settings specified temp drive or folder) has been filled with a 4MB file called wqy-microhei.ttc.
After investigating I've found that Rterm.exe is creating this file and failing to delete it:
Looking at the timestamps I think it's coming from a workflow which updates Alteryx Connect with data from the Gallery. Anybody seen a similar issue?
We had several of our scheduled workflows abort last night because there wasn't enough space to write temp files. Everything related to the Gallery should be written to our 😧 drive, but C: was filled with several Gigabytes of the wqy-microhei.ttc file in the temp directory on C:
I don't think this is harmless. It is ticking time bomb. I have deleted all those directories now (more than 60 GB), but I need to check our hard disk every now and then, because obviously this is bound to happen again.
My original answer was not considering the case of heavily used environments which may lead to the production of a lot of file. Also, current workaround is to manually removed files wqy-microhei.ttc and associated folder, I would suggest to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for follow-up.
