Hello @yagoaparecidoti 

 

If those files extension is hprof yes, they are safe to be removed. If you're investigating an issue with a service crash they may be helpful.

 

Additionally, hprof files are an indication that a service does not have enough heap size, so if the file is called something like, "mgmt_mgmt-NAVIGATORMETASERVER-<ID>_pid$$.hprof" it means that you have issues with the Navigator Metadata Services not having enough assigned heap memory. All the other services/roles meet the same naming convention.

 

Hope this helps!
