I have a database server that supports a single application. Sadly much of the configuration of this box is strictly controlled by the vendor. So in the event we change things they may discontinue support.
Apparently one of their scripts has stopped running, because since June 15 we have been accumulating tons of files who's names have the following format: ARCxxxxx_xxxxxxxxxx.001 They are all basically just under 25MB. What are these files? The content is binary, they appear not to change once written (looking at the backups of this server and what's in the incrementals). Can I just delete them? They appear to be some sort of transaction logging based on the number generated when compared to our work weeks?
Vendor Support has not been forthcoming and has just told me "that shouldn't happen, the script should deal with them." But they won't tell me which script. I'm not getting error logging in the event logs. Is there an oracle log that might tell me which script is failing so I can see if I can figure out why?
