Elasticsearch files in tmp folder: how to change there location

Hello guys,
I have set up elk in linx server using tar, but my tmp directory gets filled with files in following formates

/tmp/Elasticsearch-17741669071348173933

How to change there location?

You can control this with the $ES_TMPDIR environment variable.

we set it like this right export ES_TMDIR = /tmp/ES then restart es, right?

It'll be something like that. The exact details are more of a sysadmin question which will depend on your system - this isn't the best place to get help on that. As long as $ES_TMPDIR is set when Elasticsearch starts then it should be happy.

i did this even

echo $ES_TMPDIR
/tmp/ES

gives me this
but still Elasticsearch files are getting created in /tmp directory only
