how to clean /dev/sd1

how to clean /dev/sd1


Hi Everybody, we have CS1000 7.6, we have full Dev/sd1 directory, somebody know how to clean it.


RE: how to clean /dev/sd1

I haven't worked on Nortel / Avaya systems for many years, but still have access to an old database that might help with this record that I've found?

Increasing the log file rotation on a linuxbase signalling server

Solution Summary
Log in to the server in question at root level and use the VI commands
This applies to Any linuxbase sig server hosting Avaya/nortel applications

Sometimes Avaya request debug log file collection to assist in problem resolution and it may be necesary to increase the amount of historical ss_common.log file held on the affected server.
To do this do the following
1. log in to the server CLi and expedite to root user
2. Navigate to /etc/logrotate.d directory
3. cat the existing file ss_common_syslog (It will show the default value as per below)
rotate 5
create 640 root nortel
olddir /var/log/nortel/old_logs/
/bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/rsyslogd.pid 2> /dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true
4. Using the VI editor modify the file to read as per below
rotate 30
create 640 root nortel
olddir /var/log/nortel/old_logs/
/bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/rsyslogd.pid 2> /dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true
5. Then restart the services, for example

$ /sbin/service rsyslog restart
[root@netsucm ~]# /sbin/service rsyslog restart

RE: how to clean /dev/sd1

Good Morning, thanks for you help, this is the message that we had on the CS1000 7.6:

linuxbase: (EMERG) Base: alarm(817): PID[18133]: WARNING SET: '/dev/sda11' disk is getting full and has passed the 85% threshold. Only 309837824 bytes remain.

We have trouble to clean this partition.

What Hardware has you run ?
Login over ssh
Type DF -h and present output here

RE: how to clean /dev/sd1

Hi i saw your answer late
A bit strange because active logs and traces are actually stored in the /var partition and cause a disruption.
I've never seen the sda11 on our systems like this.
You should go into the system with the browser and check the "Software Loads".
Check if the file ".nai " still on system .
If yes delete it
I think there are still all the installation files on it
Is that a hardware CPDC , CPPM

RE: how to clean /dev/sd1

Wich system is installed there ?
Callserver or signaling server ?

Follow those steps to clean up

How to free up disk space for Service Pack installation.
If during SP installation you get an error message like “There is no enough disk space on “/var” partition”, you should follow these steps to free up additional disk space.
If you want to free up disk space on “/admin” partition:
Remove *.nai file(s) from the system. Log in to UCM and go to Software Deployment Software Loads. Select *.nai load(s) and click ‘Delete’ button. ->
If you want to free up disk space on “/var” partition:
1. Remove patching content.
Log in to UCM and go to Patches -> Patches and select one of the three targets:
Service Packs & Deplists – if you want to remove Service Packs/Deplists;
Patches – if you want to remove patches;
Loadware – if you want to remove Loadware file(s);
Select unnecessary Patch Content and click ‘Delete’ button.
2. Clean up backup archives.
Log in to UCM and go to Software Deployment -> Backups page, select backup(s), and click ‘Delete’ button. You can save your backup files on remote servers (SFTP backup).
3. Remove any files from “/var/opt/nortel/patch/sp”. Login as nortel/admin2 on CS1000 and invoke:
cd /var/opt/nortel/patch/sp
rm *
4. Empty the /var/opt/nortel/base/RecoveryCache folder. Login as nortel/admin2 on CS1000 and invoke:
cd /var/opt/nortel/base/RecoveryCache
rm *
5. To free up temporary disk space consumed by patching operations.
It is necessary to clear completed activities in Patching Manager. All ongoing operations on targets can be viewed in the "In Progress" tab. Options are given to proceed with patching activation once patching impact assessment is completed (in manual mode) or to clear completed operations. Both should be done promptly to free up space and allow other patching of any other targets to proceed.
6. Clean up old logs from “/var/log/nortel/old_logs/”. Login as nortel/admin2 user on CS1000 and invoke:
cd /var/log/nortel/old_logs
rm *
7. Clean up two Jboss log folders on the Primary UCM:
“/var/opt/nortel/Jboss-Quantum/conf/quantum-config/securityserver/stats/” and “/var/opt/nortel/Jboss-Quantum/conf/quantum-config/securityserver/log/”
Login as nortel/admin2 user on CS1000 and invoke:

8. Clean up SPS logs (if NRS applications are deployed). Login as nortel/admin2 user on CS1000 and invoke:
cd /var/opt/nortel/sps/LOG/old_logs/
rm *
9. Uninstall previously applied patches.
delete the files as mentioned above. if still warning is seen then the only way we have is to increase the size of hard disk or change the hardware to CPDC

You may also find large log old files in the following directory:
