Clean up file_cache automatically when using chef-solo


#1

We are using chef-solo and the the file_cache get larger and larger and
files won’t be deleted.

It is possible to tell chef that everytime when chef-solo is run, it remove
all the files inside the file_cache automatically?

(Definitely I can rm myself, but I am looking for cross platform way
or preferred way to do it)

Thanks.

not that im aware of, you can perhaps drop a report handler which clears
the Chef::Config[:file_cache_path]
