TitleNetsight/Extreme Management Center Reports a Critical alarm-Appliance Disk Usage
Symptoms
Minimum free space requirement of 10Gb not met for "/"
Critical Appliance Disk Usage netsight_server Minimum free space requirement of 2Gb not met for "/"
Critical Database Backup Disk Usage --- Insufficient disk space for Database Backup of 'netsight'
Environment
  • NetSight
  • Console
  • PurView
  • Version 6.1.0.135 and higher
Cause
A message was added to warm of low free drive space on the NetSight server.
Resolution
Free drive 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 might not be needed

3.  /NetSight_Install_Path/NetSight/.installer -- all files can be removed from this location.

4. If NAC Manager and use is present, then NAC End System event messages may be present and filling up logs. Consider lowering Data Persistence defaults using the below article.
Where do I see older end system events that are no longer in the End System Events tab?
Additional notes
You can use the linux OS cli to find large files. These files may be system files (not information) and not a good idea to delete without checking with GTAC.
 
find / -xdev -type f -size +1G

or for smaller files

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

or medium and above - prefered printout

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