Hi Sergio,

once you have installed ARCo,
the dbwriter process will read data from the reporting file and store it 
into the ARCo database.

Before dbwriter starts reading the file, it renames it to 
and it deletes it once it has stored all data to the database.
Otherwise the reporting file would (quickly) become huge - depending on 
your cluster size and throughput.
This is done in an interval you can configure at installation time (and 
later on in dbwriter.conf), IIRC the default is 1 Minute.

Best regards,
