ql_ima log on ESXi filling up /tmp

Hi All,

 

anyone come across a ql_ima.log file that fills up the /tmp folder on ESXi 5.5? we are running B200 M3 blades with Cisco ViC 1240. 

a quick search on the internet points to users having to update the qlogic driver to fix the issue. if we delete the file, it re-creates it. we dont have a qlogic card in the blade & correct my if i am wrong, but the 1240 would not use a qlogic driver?

 

any ideas on this?

Thanks

Kass

rename the tmp folder

 

mv/tmp tmp.old

 

mkdir /tmp

Anyone find a proper fix for this? Which driver would this be caused by on the B200 M3 and has anyone successfully stopped this from filling up the /tmp by updating the driver?

 

Or is it fixed in a certain ESXi version?

Hi All,we seem to have a fix

Hi All,

we seem to have a fix for the ql_ima.log issue. i got in touch with TAC & they advised updating the qlogic driver for our version of ESXi & it has fixed the issue. we are no longer seeing the ql_ima.log being created on the host we applied the fix to. we are rolling this out to other hosts now.

the info from TAC is as follows:

"

Per our conversation there has been some issues with the inbox driver, updating to the following qlogic driver should resolve the ql_ima.log issues even though this driver is not actually in use by any devices on the blade:

 

https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESXI55-QLOGIC-QLA4XXX-63455280-1VMW&productId=351

 

The instructions are in the zip file under DOC/Readme.  Let me know if you have any questions.

"

hope this helps.
