Freeing Up Space on the Avaya IPOSE 9.1

Freeing Up Space on the Avaya IPOSE 9.1

Hello Guys,

I realised the HDD is red(100%)
I don't have many media files on the server.
Thinking something could be taking up space.
Logs maybe?
Has anyone encountered this? How do I free up space?
Where to look and what to delete..?


RE: Freeing Up Space on the Avaya IPOSE 9.1

red on the led on the front on in the webpage? On the drive LED is usually a dead drive.

web mgmt show disk usage? if you have Administrator and root passwords, root can "df -h" to show you if it's full.

I can't recall when they changed it but one-X Portal used to stall servers if it was left on ALL or VERBOSE logging. Go into the portal admin to turn its logging off and use the web control/platform view Logs menus to delete the accumulated log files.

Stuck in a never ending cycle of file copying.

RE: Freeing Up Space on the Avaya IPOSE 9.1

if you can get to the command line the du command will display disk usage

there are various options to this command that can help with the display, it is easiest if you check the man page

man du

on ucm's a common cause of this was the file nohup.out in the root directory

delete & reboot would resolve untill it filled again

Do things on the cheap & it will cost you dear

Hello guys.
Thanks for all your suggestions. I will be back at the Client's.
Will let you know if it works.

RE: Freeing Up Space on the Avaya IPOSE 9.1

Thanks. Tried deleting the log files from that path but it doesn't take any effect.

Will deleting this actually work?

I managed to delete some logs from root directory: /opt/witness/logs
It provided some free space.
But between Friday and Monday, the disk is full again.

If it is Linux then open a SSH session and login as root.
At the prompt enter 'find -ctime -5' without the quotes for a list of modified files in the last 5 days
If the list is too long then add '| more' to the command, then only one page at a time is shown.

If you want to delete older log files the following command can be used:
'find *.log* -mtime +5 -exec rm {} \;'
It removes all files with the extension .log older as 5 days.
