yes, in the DBconnect Configuration > Settings > General > JVM Options section you can add
-Djava.io.tmpdir=/app/javatmp to change the temp directory where the are stored. Here you can see I changed it to /app/javatmp.

In my case, the .tmp files were over filling the 2g of my /tmp directory, the default path. When i directed them to a new location with more space, the files clean themselves up after the ingest completes.

we are running into same issue. Has anyone encountered this situation before? Any way to re-direct these files elsewhere?
