Caching issue white screen of death

Caching issue white screen of death

Hi

 

I keep on getting a white screen every now and then. Emptying the cache folder always fixes the problem. Has anyone come across this issue before? There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it.

 

Magento: 1.9.0.1

I think I have found the issue. Apparently Magento does not clear out the cache directory so it gets so big that it eventually crashes the site. I have found this blog that suggests to run a bash script on a cron job to clear the cache, sessions and report directory every 12 hours.
