Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

Jump to solution

Gateway: CheckPoint 1100

Version: R77.20

OS: Gaia

Most of my 1100's appliance have this error Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0, how can this be resolved? Any housekeeping to be done? I tried searching but couldn't find applicable solution about this problem.

Thanks.

Have you ever experienced a flash-full event with these devices after getting a low disk space alarm ? Policy installation fails with "There is not enough disc space on the device" if there is insufficient space in the /pfrm2.0 directory.

Few questions:

1. What blades are you running on the 1100?

2. How is it managed? (Local or central)

3. How are you being notified it has low disk space?

In general the non-volatile storage on an 1100 is fairly limited.

Recent OS image use a significant amount of this.

In central management the logs dir should not be filled up that much as logs are sent to central management. Do you have a SDHC card inserted into the appliance for log storage?

Hi Danny, none we don't use SDHC card in our appliances

Thanx, looks quite ok to me. Are you sure Zabix is not set to alarm at very high threshold? Is it set to monitor by size or by percentage?

I agree that this must be a wrong threshold setting - a full flash should make policy install impossible...

Hi,

I found this thread when searching for installation fail caused by lack of disc mem. My outputs of du -sh /logs /storage is about half of the above example output. I've tried all methods in the SKs except increase the fwtmp partition size.

Actually, enabling the new feature did nothing. Here's before and after in the below screen shot:

du.png

We don't have the IPS blade enabled on these but I understand it is still stored on the SMB devices. Remains to try and disable the server protections according to sk105217 and maybe increase fwtmp partition size.

we've got hundreds of these so it's a bit of an headache when you suddenly cannot install policy on them :l

Update,

Since setting the new feature to True I was actually able to install on the two GWs which I tried it on. Despite there being no visible change in the disk usage.

I think you should not worry about /pfrm2.0 (who on Earth came with this dir name Smiley Happy) because it is has more or less static content while appliance is operational.

But /storage and /logs are different story and there you could remove this and that. Like you may check and remove possible core dumps from /storage or messages log backups (also stored there).
