Summary:

Note: A product listed in this article has either reached hardware End of Life (EOL) OR software End of Engineering (EOE).  Refer to End of Life Products & Milestones for the EOL, EOE, and End of Support (EOS) dates.


 

In some circumstances, it has been seen that the /var/ directory on an SRS installation might grow to be very full.

Symptoms:

SRS Server may report an error message regarding the disk usage in the /var/ directory.
The purge option in the SRS UI may not be able to do the purging.

Solution:
In some circumstances, it has been seen that the /var/ directory on an SRS installation might grow to be very full.

There is a mechanism within the SRS User interface which schedules the purging of old log data.

However, if this is not set up initially, the mechanism used may not be able to correct the situation.

To get around this, please do the following: (This assumes that postgres is running on the default 5432 port.)
  1. Login to the SRS Server's CLI
  2. psql -U postgres -d netscreen
  3. VACUUM FULL ANALYZE VERBOSE
This will force the DB to clean up any old/unused records and should recover some disk space.
