  • 1.  SSO Logs filling up mount point

    Posted Aug 15, 2018 01:31 PM

    I'm looking for some clarification on information found in VMware KB 2143565. The instructions state to change the numeric values in the following lines:




    However, these lines are not present in the '' file on this VCSA, version

    The mount point is 10 GB in size and 100% utilized

    Filesystem                            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

    /dev/sda3                              11G  5.6G  4.6G  56% /

    udev                                  4.0G  164K  4.0G   1% /dev

    tmpfs                                 4.0G  112K  4.0G   1% /dev/shm

    /dev/sda1                             128M   41M   81M  34% /boot

    /dev/mapper/core_vg-core               25G  3.1G   21G  14% /storage/core

    /dev/mapper/log_vg-log                9.9G  9.8G     0 100% /storage/log

    /dev/mapper/db_vg-db                  9.9G  313M  9.1G   4% /storage/db

    /dev/mapper/dblog_vg-dblog            5.0G  187M  4.5G   4% /storage/dblog

    /dev/mapper/seat_vg-seat              9.9G  513M  8.9G   6% /storage/seat

    /dev/mapper/netdump_vg-netdump       1001M   18M  932M   2% /storage/netdump

    /dev/mapper/autodeploy_vg-autodeploy  9.9G  165M  9.2G   2% /storage/autodeploy

    /dev/mapper/invsvc_vg-invsvc          5.0G  167M  4.6G   4% /storage/invsvc

    I have attached a copy of the file along with drive utilization of the /storage/log/vmware directory.

    Any assistance or suggestion are greatly appreciated.

    That could be because as the KB says:

    "This issue is resolved in VMware vCenter Server 6.0 Update 3"

    But what you can try to do in order to workaround is to delete some logs and try increasing your vmdk size a little bit.

    So you will have to edit the below lines to:

    From log4j.appender.LOGFILE.RollingPolicy.maxIndex=10 to log4j.appender.LOGFILE.RollingPolicy.maxIndex=5

    From log4j.appender.LOGFILE.TriggeringPolicy.MaxFileSize=100000000 to log4j.appender.LOGFILE.TriggeringPolicy.MaxFileSize=50000000

    Make sure you take a backup copy of the config file.

    Please consider marking this answer as "correct" or "helpful" if you think your questions have been answered

    Thank you for your response and help. Your response along with info found HERE

    “/storage/log filesystem is low on disk space or nodes” warning on platform service controller – vClass Notes

    I was able to clean up some of the SSO log file space and got it down to 1.7 GB available or 83% free.

    Thanks again.
