I have set DIJITSO_CACHE_DIR to a ramdisk to avoid clogging the /tmp directory and wasting read/write cycles on the storage drive. However, Fenics continues to write many directories and files to /tmp. The directories are of the format /tmp/tmplcvws9sv. The files contain assembly language and are of the format /tmp/cc81OMd8.o, /tmp/ccHsfhM5.c, /tmp/ccjd2VW6.le, /tmp/ccNOV0O6.res, and /tmp/ccYkvkx7.s.
I have traced the directory generation to dijitso/build.py:120 and fixed it by changing:
However, I can’t find the source of the cc* files. Is there a better way to get Fenics to stop writing these nuisance files?
