[Junos] Policy Enforcer (PE) Disk Cleanup



Article ID: KB34205 KB Last Updated: 10 May 2019Version: 1.0

Policy Enforcer Disk may fill up with logs over time.


Policy Enforcer is out of disk space.


Policy Enforcer processes have debug logging enabled by default, and it is best to leave debug on for future troubleshooting:

Path: /srv/feeder/log/

The best and easiest way to delete old log data from /srv/feeder/log/

Do not delete the files without dates in the filename when Policy Enforcer is running.  Instead, use a command like the following example:

To remove all files from 2019 (excluding the active files without year in the name)

rm -f  /srv/feeder/log/*2019*

(Make sure there are NO spaces before the * characters or it will delete MORE than you want)

Policy Enforcer versions prior to Junos 19.1 may use a large amount of disk space in  /var/lib/feeder/feed_data  over time.  Do NOT delete anything from this directory. These are required for feeds to function correctly.  Junos 19.1 includes some cleanup code to reduce the disk space used here. Please upgrade to Junos 19.1
