CiscoWorks Backup

Hi,

I am unable to run a backup as my diskspace is to low.

Apparantly from the log file I have 23196244Kb of space and require 161795341Kb.

This seems like an extremely large backup file. Is there anyway to reduce the backup size significantly.

Regards

Miron

Re: CiscoWorks Backup

I bet your single largest disk-eating directory is /var/adm/CSCOpx/files/rme/dcma/difffiles. You can verify that with "du -skr".

You can examine and delete those diff files older than NNN days with:

cd /var/adm/CSCOpx/files/rme/dcma/difffiles

find . -type f -mtime +NNN -print -exec ls -ltr '{}' \; | less

find . -type f -mtime +NNN -print -exec rm -r '{}' \;

Re: CiscoWorks Backup

Hi,

I am running this on a windows platform. The size of the difffiles folder is only around 350MB. The entire CSCOpx directory is 105GB.

Is there somewhere else i should be looking.

Re: CiscoWorks Backup

Assuming you're referring to /var/adm/CSCOpx (or the Windows equivalent), it depends on many factors such as how the Syslog Purge and Job Purge have been configured in RME. Since the backup doesn't include /var/adm/CSCOpx/logs, check out the "dcma" and "jobs" directories under /var/adm/CSCOpx/files/rme.
