Last week I was getting an error message when the client or designer tried to load the project stating “Error launching application: EOFException: null”. I was able to track the issue down to the cache becoming corrupted. This Edge device is operating off a Moxa Industrial PC using Ignition Mint whose main “Hard Drive” is a Compact Flash Card and is (and will always be) harshly shut down without powering down the system first.
To overcome this issue I’ve written a script to delete the ~/.ignition/cache each time the computer turns on prior to launching the vision client. However, I was wondering if there was a setting somewhere that would prevent the storing of the files in cache by default? It’s an edge device that will always be run locally off the PC so its not like I’m really gaining anything by storing things in a “local” cache.
