writing files to target server?

Good Afternoon,
Noticed while running a scan on 2 separate PeopleSoft systems that during the scans disk space dropped by over 2GB an hour. Searching for the newly created files found nothing of note. After I terminate the scans the disk space jumps back up to normal.The target server is not the server I am running Arachni from.
So my question is, does Arachni cache any files on the target and then remove them once the scan completes/report is built?
I have attached an error log if that helps at all.
Thanks for any insight you may be able to provide.

    Arachni doesn't write anything on the server side, except via the http_put check, but the file is deleted immediately and it's unlikely that this is what's going on.

    My best guess is that the webapp is creating tmp files for caching or something.
