What information is stored in /storage partition

Jump to solution

Hello Checkmates,

Hope you are well.

I would like to understand what kind of information is being saved in the /storage partition on SMB (Gaia Embedded) appliances. 

[Expert@hostname]# df -h

Filesystem              Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
tmpfs                       20.0M 5.4M 14.6M       27%    /tmp
tmpfs                       40.0M 21.7M 18.3M     54%    /fwtmp
/dev/mmcblk1p8   623.8M 258.5M 319.7M 45%  /logs
/dev/mmcblk1p11 1.2G 987.3M 156.9M      86%  /storage
/dev/mmcblk1p3   692.7M 420.0M 222.3M 65%  /pfrm2.0
tmpfs                       20.0M 9.8M 10.2M         49%   /tmp/log/local
tmpfs                       500.0M 0 500.0M           0%     /tetmp

 

For example, from what I remember, /pfrm2.0 partition is being used to store policy configuration.

Could you please elaborate on what data/information is being stored on the rest of the partitions?

 

Thank you.

Andreas.

/storage contains:

- IPS / AV / APPL and other downloaded anti-malware files

- firmware image when upgrading (sk141512)

For resolving TP update issues, it had once been suggested by TAC to clear the "/storage" folder and reboot the device. It gets cleared after every firmware update, though...

Hi @G_W_Albrecht,

regarding this topic, I'm seeing an almost full usage of the /tmp/log/local on a 1590 R80.20SP device, is it something that needs to be handled? 

Thank you

Carlo

/tmp/log/local is the folder for local security log files folders - if you have a local management, older folders (0 1 2 3 4 5 6...) will be deleted. If managed centrally logs are sent to the log server, so this /tmp partition is not so important anymore 😎

/logs stores the system messages files, all but the newest as .gz. /tmp also stores the current messages file.

All these tmpfs partitions are cleared at reboot !
