This task describes how to set up the Filesystem Cleanup recovery action, which removes files once the percentage of the file system currently in use, measured by FSCapacity parameter, exceeds the threshold established in either Alarm1 or Alarm2. This recovery action attempts to remove core dump files, and if the file system is /tmp or /tmp is mounted off this file system, attempts to remove from /tmp files that are 30 days old or older.
