" VAR space running out and incapacitating the whole device"

Hi, regarding " VAR space running out and incapacitating the whole device".. to the point where device changes its state to "INOPERATIVE" where you can not see license nor provisioning any longer untill you restore VAR space.

Is there a way to to increase VAR space , or is there a better way to manage VAR space ? Can there be an alert setup when VAR space would be approaching critical "available space" teshold? If so, how could one approach this solution ( if there is one ) ?

Many Thanks in advance

Hi John,

 

in most cases old maintenance files, UCS archives, qkviews and tcpdumps are using up space in /var.

To locate the 10 largest files on the system, issue the following command:

find /var -xdev -type f -exec du {} \; | sort -rn | head -10

And there is a whole KB article that will help you sort this issue:

K14403: Maintaining disk space on the BIG-IP system

 

Best of luck
