Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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.

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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.

- How are you notified? I'm using Zabbix monitoring tool

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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?

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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.

Re: Low Disk Space on /pfrm2.0

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).
