R80.40 "cpview -t" is not working

Jump to solution

Hi,

we got strange issue, cpview command is not working in a history mode, so when we tried cpview -t we got response:

History is initializing

 

Ordinary cpview is working normally.

 

[Expert@CP1:0]# cpview -t

CPView: History is initializing
[Expert@CP1:0]# exit
exit
CP1> show version all
Product version Check Point Gaia R80.40
OS build 294
OS kernel version 3.10.0-957.21.3cpx86_64
OS edition 64-bit

 

Do you have some ideas what could be the reason cpview -t is not working?

Make sure your /var/log partition is not full with df -h as that will halt cpview history logging.

Next try restarting the cpview services like this:

cpview -s off

cpview -s on

If still having the problem, there may be some corruption in the cpview history database file here: $CPDIR/log/cpview_services/* 

If you can turn cpview services off, back up all files in this directory, remove them, then restart cpview services.

Thanks @Timothy_Hall  after restarting cpview services I got cpview history for the time since restart (not before).  Before restarting cpview services I also noticed that my cpview database history file is quite old, and that after restart it got refreshed. Also, I have checked df -h and its fine. Here is my complete command log:

[Expert@CP1:0]# df -h
