    Cluster_yyyymmdd.txt Files Getting Generated in DistributionService Log Folder

    Yuvraj Killedar

      Dear All,


      We are facing a scenario where Cluster_yyyymmdd.txt file is getting generated under following path:



      The cluster file contains reference from C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService\TaskResults\*.xml files.


      The Cluster_yyyymmdd.txt consists of errors relating to .xml files from TaskResults folder.


      Below is the error the cluster file shows:

      Failed to read from C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService\TaskResults\TaskResult_FileName.xml. Exception=System.FormatException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime. || at System.DateTime.Parse(String s) || at QDSMain.TaskResult.ReadXml(XmlReader reader) || at QDSMain.Clustering.ClusterFileHandler.Read(Action`1 readXML)


      This is happening since past few days.


      Prior to that, no cluster files were created in the log folder. Only WorkOrder & Root files were generated.


      Also, there used to be 1 or 2 .xml files generated per day in TaskResults folder, but now, frequency has reached around 150 files a day.


      Because of this, the size of Cluster_yyyymmdd.txt file reaches upto 3-4 gb, due to which, C: drive is filling rapidly.


      Kindly provide inputs for above issue.


      Also attaching sample data from Cluster_yyyymmdd.txt file.


      Additional Details:

      QV Build: 11.20.12904.0

      Thanks in advance.
