cpm_doctor files taking up space

Hi

I have a Smartevent appliance, which starts to run out of space on /var/log. Upon investigating, there are files being created in the /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.40/fw1/log/cpm_doctor folder. Every few days, in this folder, there appears a new .tgz file which is 45G in size. 

This has happened a few times and all I do is delete the files to clear space but the files just get re-created every few days. I assume this is some sort of diagnostics running. 

So, can anyone tell me how to stop this from running, so I don't keep running out of space every few months? 

Many thanks
Roy

Hi Roy,

Can you share the output of this command :  ls -ltr /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.40/fw1/log/cpm_doctor ? 

In addition, do you have Jumbo installed ? If so - which take ?

Thanks,
Shoval.

Thanks Roy.

For avoiding keeping so many files to be created under this directory please replace the cpm doctor script under $MDS_FWDIR/scripts with the script that I attached. Latest cpm doctor script include a fix to this issue.
Please add execute permission to the file.

Waiting for your updates,
Shoval.

The script wasn't attached properly due its extension (.sh).

Can you share your email so I can send it to you offline ?

Hi Shoval

Can you attach it without the extension?

I've tried with no success.

Also changing its extension to 'txt' doesn't help, since it recognize that file's content is different.

Hello Shoval, I have the same problem with many large cpm_doctor files filling up a standalone, non-MDS R80.40 system.  Can I get the updated cpm_doctor script?  Or, is it rolled into a certain jumbo?  Thanks!

Hello Shoval, We have exactly the same problem with many large cpm_doctor files filling up MDS R80.40 system (JHF T91). 

Can we get the updated cpm_doctor script?  

Not sure why the -h parameter does not show the version of the file. But I guess it might be cpm doctor build version 193

Regards
