Thanks Rekha.

These issues seem to be related to cleaning up Pig/Hadoop file upon shutdown
of the VM. I just checked and when I shut down the VM, all files are cleaned
up as expected.

My issue is that I have Pig jobs that run in an app server which are
triggered by quartz. It might be days or weeks between app server bounces.
If anyone knows a way to configure or kick off some sort of cleanup process
without shutting down the VM, please let me know.

Otherwise, I need to deploy a hacky crontab script like this:

find /tmp/Job[0-9]*.jar -type f -mmin +50 -exec rm {} \;

JobCleanup task which takes care of cleaning.., AFAIK.., unless its failed

Every time I run a Pig script I get a number of Job jars left in the /tmp

I have scripts that run every five minutes and fire 10 MR jobs each, so the
amount of space used by these jars grows rapidly. Is there a way to tell
to clean up after itself and remove these jars, or do I need to just write
my own clean-up script?
