hp-ux 11.31 server creates an archive file on path / var / tmp by user sfmdb and var is full.

Hi

My hp-ux 11.31 server creates an archive file on path / var / tmp by user sfmdb. What causes path / var is full? As an example, below.

Please help me, I will explain to the customer I understand.

-rw-r--r--   1 sfmdb      users      582003187 Dec  1 04:14 aaac02030

   Is there some actual command which "creates" this "an archive file"?
(What, exactly, does ""an archive file" mean to you?)  Why?

   /var has a finite size, and you've used all of it?  Delete old files?
Make /var larger?

These are massive (582 MB) temporary files created by the System Fault Manager. They appear to be created every 2 days. These might be related to the database within SFM. One possible solution is to run through these steps:

# cimprovider –dm SFMProviderModule
# cimserver –s
# /sbin/init.d/sfmdb stop
# cd /var/opt/sfmdb/
# rm -r pgsql
# /sbin/init.d/sfmdb start
# cimserver
# cimprovider –em SFMProviderModule

Then delete all the large files in /var/tmp owned by sfmdb and ending with 02030.

I would recommend updating SFM. You may need other patches to go with the SFM set:
