Running out of disk space

by on ‎12-20-2012 01:39 PM


Is there a possibility to increase disk space? I've been runnin vPV for 6 dasy now and my database has less than 1GB free space.


You can run standard checks on the VA to see if there are some really large unused files on the VA if in case you  have downloaded or ftp-ed some files into the VA.




Shutdown vpv

Add another disk of say 30 gb size or more, format it as a linux filesystem.


Then use sym-links to point /var/opt/OV/databases/pv to the new partition

Copy over old db files to new location and then restart pv.


Remember to add the new disk to mounts so that the disk is mounted automatically on reboot.


Good news is all this can be done without doing a reboot.


I recommend you log an enhancement on vPV to partition the disk as volumes, using LVM so that it is possible to extend volumes easily.

I have something that is using up huge amounts of disk space, sometimes 15GB in a day.  I'm not able to see the size of files or folders so that I can find the culprut.  How do I get the system to provide used space by folder and file?  Or is there another tool that I can use?
