Security Gateway Disk full

My one of the R80.10 Gateway Disk is full and it is build on VMware. If any one has any suggestion.

Now no logs are switched to management server...

/var/log  --->100%

Hi Aloke,

Based on your mention of no logs on the Management server from the Gateway, we can assume that the gateway is logging locally for some reason.

1. Verify SIC.
2. Open a case with TAC.

Under normal circumstances, the Gateway should not fill to 100%.

  - We need to verify the "Logs" Pane of the Gateway Object in SmartConsole.

     - "Local Storage" Configuration
  - There will be Disk Space Thresholds to configure here.

    - Configurable Actions to perform when Disk space is above thresholds.


/var/log optimize to 80% yesterday by deleting some old logs but after a hour again /var/log is 100%.

There is URL filtering , application control blade ,identity awareness, and Firewall blade is enabled.


Use this command from expert mode to find large files on the /var/log filesystem:

find /var/log -mount -type f -size +10000000 -ls

If it doesn't find any, knock a zero off the "10000000" and try again.
