console alert

Hi,

Our rx6600 HP-UX 11.31 is showing the below alert in the console:

audomon: not enough disk space - user process is blocked
audomon: must manually free up file system space before another auto-switch can happen!!

audomon: not enough disk space - audit records are dropped
audomon: must manually free up file system space before another auto-switch can happen!!

If i do a BDF, there are no full filesystems.

what to do?

thanks!

Re: console alert

use lsof to find the process and close it and the space will return:

Re: console alert

Someone may already have deleted the audit log file that was in use.

Because audit logging is at least partly a kernel function, there may not be a process you can kill.

Run "audsys" without any options to view your auditing parameters.

If the configured audit log files don't exist, try disabling and then re-enabling auditing:

audsys -f
audsys -n

Re: console alert

In addition to what Matti said, the above error can also occur if CAFS and XAFS were specified for the auditing system logs. These are Current and neXt Auditing File Sizes. If the current and next files have reached these sizes the logging will stop and you will get the same error.
Do you have a script to check if a log file switc has occured and set the old log as the next one. If not you need to set one up and run it in cron.
