We upgraded an Automic agent from version V12.0.4 to 12.2.4. After the upgrade was finished the agent started to create some unknown files that are named like ucxjxxx_Agent_t00-ftx-RunID.txt,
e.g. ucxjxxx_GF0VSXAS064P_UC42P_t00-ftx-724257172.txt. These files won't be deleted by the normal period for logfiles. After a search in the internet and the broadcom community and knowledge base we found the following articles:
The last article says that the issue is known and it would be fixed with versions 12.0.4 and 12.1.1 of the agent. Unfortunately it still exists or is rolled out again
Release : 12.2
Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE
This due to the wrong setting in max trace size to 0 in the old Java UI
When this is set to 0 agent creates FTX and other trace files
Set the max trace size to 128 and the agent stops creating trace files.
