Information

 
TitleHow to free disk space in Extreme Management Center Server (formely Netsight)
Objective
  • Free disk space in NetSight server
  • Free disk space in XMC or Extreme Management Center
  • Less than 2G
Environment
  • NetSight server  CLI
  • XMC
  • Disk space
Procedure
Free disk space by checking the following locations for files to delete:
 
1. /NetSight_Install_Path/NetSight/backup -- remove older backups if not needed
2. /NetSight_Install_Path/NetSight/appdata/logs -- remove any old logs that are not needed - also see limiting number of log files in Extreme Management Center /appdata/logs
3. /NetSight_Install_Path/NetSight/.installer -- remove all files from this location
Additional notes
you can use for linux based appliances only
find / -type f -printf '%s %p\n' | sort -nr | head -20 
This will print out path and file size for 20 top size files

to look for large directories
du | sort -nr |  head -20


Useful command to find the largest files
du -s * |sort -nr| head -20

Using find command
find / -xdev -type f -size +1G

find / -xdev -type f -size +100M

find / -type f -size +500M -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $NF ": " $5 }'
