GSS root at 94%

Hi, we have a two GSS 4490 that are showing a 94% of used space under the root partition “/”.

We are afraid of how it could affect not only right now, but also, if it keeps growing until it reaches the 100%.

How can we prevent/solved this problem. If more info is needed, just let me know it.

Thank u. (a lot)

Re: GSS root at 94%

The '/' partition is created with 634M and it is usually full by more than 90%.

GSS mainly uses '/cisco/merlot/state', '/cisco/merlot/data/psql', '/cisco/merlot/safe-state' and '/rw' partitions for storing the data.

As the usage of these partitions is in control no need to worry about this.

Please do keep tracking the '/' portion usage and let me know if its % of usage is increasing day by day.

When I receive the tech-report, I will take a look at it and let you know if there is we see any findings.

Cheers,

David K.

Re: GSS root at 94%

Can you please get the CLI command and its output that you are using to calculating % of used space?

I would advise you open a TAC case for this as well if it's growing to that number quickly. The first thing you likely will be asked is to collect the gss tech-report (CLI command : gss tech-report ) and send it. If you wish you can forward it to me to take a look, but the best path for any significant troubleshooting is a TAC case.

Re: GSS root at 94%

Thank u for the response.

It is a GSS-4492R-K9 using Cisco GSS - 2.0(2)

I didn't use any command, we found that thru the GUI (I'm attaching some screenshots).

I will collect the tech report and sent it to u before opening a TAC case, I was thinking about opening a TAC case since the beginning, but cause my skills for this technology are poor, I prefer to have an expert opinion first.

Thank u.

Re: GSS root at 94%

The GSS 'show disk' output displays plenty of free space but your monitoring tool does not.

Top 10 Volumes by Disk Space Used:

GSS glb.bns.mx 94%

glb.bns.mx#sh disk

Size Used Free

User space(/) 67189 MB 484 MB 66022 MB

GSS glb2.bns.mx 94%

glb2.bns.mx#show disk

Size Used Free

User space(/) 69367 MB 362 MB 68300 MB

We are using Solar Winds, so the problem must be on how Solar Winds gets the info.

I will post the resolution as soon as I check it.

Re: GSS root at 94%

Yeap, the / partition displaying 94% is a non-issue.

The / partition maintains system files only and has a limited partition size.
