Free space on partition /var on MX is running low

  • 1.  Free space on partition /var on MX is running low

    Posted 18 days ago
    Hi,

    Last night I received an alert received in my inbox as  -

    Free space on partition /var on MX is running low subsystem : /var 

    I could recognise there are archive files in /var/tmp folders and I deleted a lot of them. But, still I can see those files in /tmp directory, and the /var usage is still same.

    Can anyone help me understand this ?

    Regards

    Hi Chintan,

    This link should help... Imperva Documentation Portal

    Gateway

    1. Delete unused large files
      • Mainly old logs (ex. ​/opt/SecureSphere/etc/logs/GatewayLog/GatewayLog_[date].html )
      • Crash files in /var/crash/imperva/
      • Upgrade files in /var/securesphere/upgrades/ – purge old upgrade directories
    2. On VMs, Increase disk size
    3. In DAM, refine "Audit archive" & purge settings to act more frequently

      Let me know if this answers your question.

      Thanks,

      Hi @Chintan Myakal,

      Yes, these files can be safely deleted to free the space.
