Problem with RCA - Over 138k files generated

Hello,

We are using kubernetes with opendistro. We started to notice an issue where /var would start filling up and tracked the issue to our pods that are running opendistro 1.9.0. The /tmp directory in the pod is between 16-30Gb in size and contains over 138 000 files with the name “metricsdb”:

Is this related to the newly implemented RCA? Can we somehow disable it?

Thanks
