SMS Automatically Backing Up Gateway Config

I was in the process of writing a script that would grab the "show configuration" from every gateway, but found in the /var/tmp directory on my SMS the exact thing I was looking for. The directory contains a file titled "<IP Address>-configuration.elg" for every gateway that is managed by the SMS, and appears to get updated every day early in the morning. This is great, but now I'm trying to figure out where these files are coming from. There's nothing in the crontab that would account for this. What process, script, whatever is running that creates them? The SMS is R80.10.
