Best practice: Use scratch space for temporary files

April 24, 2019

The GLADE scratch file space is a temporary space for data that will be analyzed and removed within a short amount of time. It is also the recommended space for temporary files that would otherwise reside in small /tmp or /var/tmp directories that many users share. See Storing temporary files with TMPDIR for more information.

See this CISL page for more recommended best practices.
