On all my systems, especially Linux ones, I see 100's of files being deleted. 

I see only a few old error'e tasks so it cant be much of a problem except the event queue is so full it is hard to find other stuff.

This would be considered as

This would be considered as normal operations due to the locality scheduler used on this project.
A few data files can support a lot of workunits/tasks and when they are all done the data files will be removed.
Or put in other words, you download a bunch of data files and Einstein then sends task that analyze them in different ways, there could be a lot of tasks for only a few data files, and when all that can be done with the data files are, then they're remove/deleted.

Yea, discovered the

Yea, discovered the "locality" program.  With a mining system I frequently see 2000+ of those messages which obscure the event log.  GPUgrid is also a big offender remining me ever few minutes that there is no project work to download.  It would not be so bad if it was just one message but the project reports on all work which comes to about 6 messages every few minutes.  As I got a bunch of systems and use Boinctasks to see what is going on, I had to put a stop to that with a "mod" of boinc.

The following addition to cc_config stops all messages that have the phrase "No work"

<exclude_proj_msg>
<proj_name></proj_name>
<msg_type></msg_type>
<msg_content>No work</msg_content>
</exclude_proj_msg>
