Agent Disk Quota can configure to Network share path?

    Can we configure Agent Disk quota i.e 8GB to NAS/SAN location? If yes any pros or cons?

    We do not have 8gb space available for agent quota.

    Thanks

    HI
    you can reconfigure the agent to relocate the pcap files. 
    under the agent settings tab, expand the advanced settings tab, you will see a default entry of <files-dir>.</files-dir>
    this can be modified to relocate the pcap files to another location. <files-dir>/opt/somelocation/</files-dir>  fully qualify the path name.

    pros/cons - ensure the read/write speed is comparable to the current location.

    Vishal,
    To add to Trevor's answer...  You can use SAN as long as it is fiber attached.  Or a NAS as long as it has a dedicated network card/route.  The pcap gets created when the network is overloaded or loses connectivity.  Using that same network to create the pcap would be pointless, the network location would be unavailable when we need to leverage it.
