Imacros Disk Space consumption

Post by loriuve » Fri Oct 18, 2019 7:18 am

Hi,
I run multiple Imacros session by command line.
I use the CLEAR comand for delete cache and cookies, but Imacros continue to consume disk space (about 100 mb every 5 minutes) and when the disk space is finish I can't run other Imacros sessions.

I use this command:

VERSION BUILD=12.5.503.8802
CLEAR
ONDIALOG POS=1 BUTTON=OK CONTENT=
ONDIALOG POS=2 BUTTON=OK CONTENT=
ONDIALOG POS=3 BUTTON=OK CONTENT=
TAB T=1
TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS
SET !WAITPAGECOMPLETE YES
SET !USERAGENT "{{AGENT}}"
URL GOTO=https://wwwwebsite.com

When I check my server with CCleaner I see that all space it's occupied by Internet Explorer cache and temporary files.

OS: Windows Server 2016 Standard 64bit
12 GB Ram
7 processor

Thank's very much!!
Lor

As you correctly noted, it is Internet Explorer that is consuming the disk space, not iMacros (the iMacros browser is really just a wrapper around the core IE engine).

Does the disk usage not decrease immediately after calling the CLEAR command?

You can also set a limit on the disk space that IE uses for temporary files by changing the relevant setting in Internet Options on your machine.
