.lxdtemp directory


I have a container that has a second directory in /var/snap/lxd/common/mntns/var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/storage-pools/default/containers/ but with a .lxdtemp added to the containername.

Why is this? Can I delete it?


stgraber@castiana:~/data/code/lxc/lxd (lxc/master)$ grep -r lxdtemp .
stgraber@castiana:~/data/code/lxc/lxd (lxc/master)$ 

So no such mention of this in our codebase. If it’s one of ours, it came from an old release and isn’t relevant anymore.

it was lxdtmp … sorry

Ah, lxdtmp seems to be used by LVM and btrfs mostly temporarily while processing a backup, so maybe something crashed around such an operation.
