Clean up tmp rc.conf
I was looking at some other issues and noticed that my /var/tmp folder was getting larger on a regular basis. it appears as though there is a new rc.conf.* file created about every 11 seconds or so (about 6 a minute). There appears to be nothing i can do to stop this. Why is this happening?
the attachment is the result of a ls -lct rc.conf.* from the /var/tmp folder.

left: VM web-console before ssh, Right: ssh into VM
I checked the rc.conf file (ls -lct rc.conf.*) via web-console before ssh(left console) into the machine, the size of the file was 919. After ssh (right console) it changed to 1027, which is understandable.
The size of rc.conf.freenas remained unchanged even after 6mins, so does the time of creation of file which means a newer file is not being created either. the total count of files in tmp remains the same as well when checked with "ls | wc -l".
