Hello Jeff Lord:
     Thank you for your ansver.
 Pass the test, I found that if the the file channel receiver speed read speed and sink end
consistent, would not result in the accumulation of a large number of files.From the source,
I found two log files will be saved in the software default file channel data directory. Thank
you very much for your help.

  It looks like the size of the data folder used by file channel does not reduce even after
all the data has been sent to the target.

 The file channel is implemented as a write-ahead log and will continue to grow the log files.
Eventually (depending upon the configured maximum size of the log files, or due to restart
of the channel) the log files will get rolled, but the old files may still be kept around
until all events in them are dereferenced completely. Only then will the old files be deleted
and space freed up on the system.

      hello everybody:
 I use the file channel to transfer files, which helps document security.
However, the file channel data directory contains log is very easy to accumulate very much.
And although I know that the the channel generated log file will be deleted, but I found that
only the first log-1 of the deleted file is the fastest, and the rest of the files I waited
more than 10 minutes, did not remove a. Therefore, I would like to know the file you want
to delete a file channel data directory, log how long.
 Thanks very much!
