Can reports be generated without archiving?

Hi,

I noticed that the reports archive before generating. My disk is running out of space due to which reports are not generating and it will take time to buy a new dedicated hard disk for ArcSight. Is it possible to generate the reports without archiving ?

You can edit 'Archive Report Expiration Time' option in schedule job and set it to lower value.

But in this case as well, the reports will still be archived, be it for a small time. I want to generate reports without archiving. Because there is no space left in my device.

Re: Can reports be generated without archiving?

This is not the way it should be done. Add/free some space or change disk to a bigger one. What is the size of your reports? Good report should not be more than 10 pages and 80-150KB. Don't you have even several megabytes free on disk?

You should know, that any disk (HDD or SSD) performs extremely(!) slow when it is full, even 98% and risk of failure is very high in such cases. So now you make your system suffer, don't do that, otherwise disk will fail soon and everything will be lost.

Re: Can reports be generated without archiving?

I will add a new disk but it will take time.

Actually that is also a strange thing I am facing, the reports are hardly 15-20 KB and still they are showing no space left on device.

This is the sample error I am getting:

"Report Apache Report could not be archived.

Reason: com.arcsight.server.reports.ReportException: Failed to archive report , cause by Write failed: java.io.IOException: No space left on device"

The database partition for saving reports if I know correctly is "ARC_SYSTEM_DATA" which is showing 4TB free. Still the reports are not generating because of no space. Can you suggest anything in this?

Reports are not stored in database. They remain on disk, usually it is /opt/arcsight/manager/reports/archive/

Can you please tell me is there any way to check how much space is left on disk?

lol.. I didn't notice that

hmm.. well, the manager is not under my control. It is controlled by some external team so I will have to ask them for the specs I guess. Anyways, thanks for the help
