Deleting .pcap files in "/var/tmp/"

Hello everyone!

I'm running an HA pair of Big-IP units (BIG-IP 12.1.2 Build 0.0.249 Final) and I need to take packet captures now and then. I'm just wondering if it's safe to delete the capture files once I'm done, like from the CLI?

Could I just [cd /var/tmp] and then [rm capturefile.pcap] ?


  • Sure, it's safe. You can even use

    rm -f /var/tmp/capturefile.pcap
