Filling var/log space due /opt/CPsuite-R80/fw1/tmp/dlp

Jump to solution

Hi, anyone had an issue with not /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80/fw1/CTX/CTX00001/tmp/dlp not being cleaned.

 

The customer are running MTA and Sandblast remote emulation and this is filling up on the gateway. No sandblast agent. There is this sk117634

This is an improved script that probably will help but i would like to know why the orignal script is failing. How long does it take between cleaning the directory (1 month or longer?). Can i see some logs regarding the execution of this script, if its failing to execute?

 

 

I found this script teCleanupOldFiles.elg

but this does not seem to include this directory.

 

Can anyone help me find out why the original script is failing. This started happen recently without  any noticable change.

sk117634 is only one sk about such issues:

But what i do not understand is why you would like to know why the orignal script is failing. I am sure there is a reason, some people will even call it a bug, but for me it is most valuable to get a solution to the customers issue. An explanation may be fine, but how could it help you in this case ?

In sk117634, we read: There is a Python script on Security Gateway that runs periodically and is responsible for removing old temporary files that were not cleaned by the regular e-mail flow. However, in case the list of temporary files is getting too long until the next call to this script, it would fail to delete them, and the list of files would get bigger over time.

Does that not explain enough ?

Hi Filip,

I'm afraid that the sk you mention is only visible to customers...

Okey, you have a point. I will accept this solution and add the script according to SK.
