Question:
After installing the eem_reporting_service and  eem_reporting_client  the tmp directory is at 100% capacity.
The files are prefixed with "audit".
How can eem reporting be configured to not retain these log files such that they fill up the filesystem?
 
Answer:
1- stop the eem reporting service via the following: 
/opt/CA/SharedComponents/uninstall.sh 

2- vi /opt/CA/SharedComponents/conf/service.xml 
change 
<param name="deleteprocessed" value="false" /> 
to read 
<param name="deleteprocessed" value="true" /> 
SAVE the file 

3- remove the audit* files from your /tmp directory. 

4- start the eem reporting back up via the following. 
/opt/CA/SharedComponents/install.sh

Using the above configuration will have the EEM reporting tool automatically remove the audit* log file(s) after then have been processed.
