Number of strange files in S3 bucket (6 posts)

    Hi

    I've setup and use plugin for several days. Today I noticed a huge amount of strange files in my bucket, they look like:
    2010-11-16-16-22-14-A34518B3AEFC1CBA
    2010-11-16-18-23-07-83FD957DECE6D3BA
    2010-11-16-18-29-12-C532B13A69C12E00
    2010-11-16-18-31-26-5314600B1722C697

    The size of each vary from 100-200 bytes to 300-400 kB (sometimes 1-2 mB). As I understand the files appear after (or with) every hit to my site with w3 total cache.

    Could anyone please explain me what are this files, where they come from and how to avoid them to appear in the bucket?

    I have no idea what those files are. Do they exist in your WordPress installation? What is the path?

    No, they don't exist in installation. The closest thing this files are could be is the object cache. But even if it is, I have no idea why are they being generated with every hit or something...

    Those are not object cache files that W3TC makes, they appear to be log files (again not created by W3TC).

    You are right: those are log files. In S3 there is an option to log all uploads etc. But I didn't expect that it happens so much often... Every log file has a bunch of uploads, hundreds actually. And there are up to ten log files for every our.

    I suggest change your settings to save your log files in a separate bucket.
