Does anyone know why the angular-modules system generated files in the contribute/dyn keeps growing at en exponential rate. Also clearing the cache doesn't seem to delete these files. We have more than 10k of those files at the moment. Any Ideas?

  • What version are you on because I'm wondering if this is a recent change, since I do remember clearing cache used to clear the folder, but yes now on latest master not only does clearing cache not clear them, just the act of clearing adds a new file every time I clear cache! And while revisiting previously cached pages seems fine, if I clear the cache and then revisit e.g. the case type settings page, it adds a new file even though the previous one is still there.

  • What extensions have you installed? Nov 13, 2019 at 14:56
  • Tried it with all extensions disabled - same thing. But now I don't think it's a recent change - see the same thing on 5.13. But I'm sure I've seen a cache clear remove the files at some point.

  • Yes a cache clear does remove the files. But with CiviCRM environment setting to production you also need a cache clear in Drupal. (If you are on Drupal). Nov 14, 2019 at 8:34
  • @JaapJansma-CiviCooP, Clearing drupal and civicrm cache does not seem to help. I've tried that. I raised this issue on mattermost and Someone mentioned on mattermost that CiviCRM doesn't do any garbage collection of these files currently. Nov 14, 2019 at 13:37
