Strange behavior for .SynologyWorkingDirectory

Postby Sharpless » Mon Jun 04, 2012 12:04 pm

I've encountered a strange behavior when using CloudStation. For me, and another account on the DS211 we are using, the .SynologyWorkingDirectory takes up lot of space. I have problem doing "ls" on it, but "ls -la" in the CloudStation folder gives the following:
Code: Select all
drwxr-xr-x    1 root     root     738398208 Jun  4 12:39 .SynologyWorkingDirectory


And total disk usage is at the moment about 130GB more than it should be.

I deleted all files, and started the service again. Checked the CloudStation/.SynologyWorkingDirectory and stopped the service as soon I saw that the problem had occured. This time though, I did a ls -l, the result looking like this:

Code: Select all
drwx------    2 root     root          4096 Jun 16 17:17 zyPrsN
drwx------    2 root     root          4096 Jun 16 17:17 zycQxR

drwx------    2 root     root          4096 Jun 16 17:18 zzy5ma


I have a larger textfile, something like just 2 MB in case someone wants to see more of those folders.

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem. A whole bunch of folders are being created in the .SynologyWorkingDirectory. Over 100'000 directory created in less then 5 minutes. I noticed this problem whilst trying to copy a simple file over to the NAS (212+) and recieving an error message saying that no more space was available on the NAS ! (reality is, more than 300GB are still available !). Anyhow, I checked out the .SynologyWorkingDirectory and also found a bunch of folders like the ones you mentionned in your post. I can't even "ls" the directory because there are so many things to list that it simply takes forever to display anything. Furthermore I uninstalled the Cloudstation from the NAS and issued a "rm -rf" on the .SynologyWorkingDirectory. It's been 5 days now and the folder is still getting emptied. humhum !

I guess Cloudstation created these phony/tmp folders in .SynologyWorkingDirectory and sucked up all of the available inodes on the filesystem hence, displaying the "outs of space" error message.

I understand that Cloudstation is in Beta and I will therefore wait for an offical release or an update to try this service again. Until then could the support team please give me a solution for deleting "rapidly" the .SynologyWorkingDirectory.

Thank you

I managed to remove all the directories created, reinstalled CloudStation and the problem was gone for a a week or two, but now it reoccured.

Any ideas why this happens?
