After upgrading from 2.11.1 to 2.13.0, VictoriaMetrics started to allocate a large number of files inside /srv/victoriametrics/data/tmp/searchResults and did not remove after use.
This resulted in high consumption space, under a short period of time; Around 100GB per day.
The current process to free up the data is to manually remove the files, followed by a restart in the container or in the VictoriaMetrics process, once even deleted the files, the file descriptors are kept open.
Approximately 200 instances with 2 or 3 services each
What is expected:
VM should remove temporary files that are not needed anymore
Upgraded docker image from 2.11.1 to 2.13.0, created a concurrent execution by opening multiples dashboard requests, from to 2 monitored nodes, and 10 services each. Did not generate the search result files.
