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] ?

Thanks!

Sure, it's safe. You can even use

rm -f /var/tmp/capturefile.pcap

It's a good idea to keep those cleaned up. I use Filezilla to retrieve or delete pcap files.
