For troubleshooting purposes, you can execute
du -x /var | sort -rn | head -20 command. It will display the biggest files/folders.
- If /var/data/monitor is shown in this list, follow System Disk Full /Var/Data/Monitor instructions.
- If the command returns a bunch of /var/tmp/sysdump-<Exinda_Hostname> files, these files can be safely removed. Execute the following command:
rm -rf /var/tmp/sysdump*
Snapshot files can also occupy a reasonable amount of space. Navigate to /var/opt/tms/snapshots folder (
cdcommand) and execute the identical
rmcommand to delete the files.
- If /var/opt/tms/stats is displayed, follow /var reaching its Capacity due to /var/opt/tms/stats guide.
- If /var/log/statisticsd is listed, terminate statisticsd and clear the folder contents:
cli en pm process statisticsd terminate _shell rm -rf /var/log/statisticsd/* cli en pm process statisticsd restart
df -h command to confirm the /var storage has more free space.
