Free Storage in DEV Environment


Hello,

We have a Sentinel 7.1 development environment that is running out of
storage space. I was woondering if there's any way to free storage from
sentinel (since it's a DEV environment, data loose is not a issue).

Thanks in advance,

Hello,

In Sentinel web interface at the top there is a Storage button/picture.
Click there and choose the Configuration. You can set under the Disk
Space Usage the 90-95% to a lower and apply it, the system will
automatically delete logfiles. When it finished, you can set it back.
You can also set the Data Retention here.
Also check it if there are any /var/opt/novell/sentinel/log/
Memorydump*.hprof files, this you can delete.

Thanks for your answer, I tried this but it does not seem that the
system is deleting any logfiles. Any otheer thoughts?

Re: Free Storage in DEV Environment


I would suggest that your Database is actually the one taking the
space....

Perform the following command at /var/opt/novell/sentinel/


Code:
--------------------
du -h --max-depth=1
--------------------


If the 3rdparty directory is the biggest, the database is taking the
space.

If the data directory is the biggest, the event data is taking the
space.



Database:

The biggest use of database space, I have found, is the Data
Synchronization policies. You could either: 1) Resynchronize the data,
truncating and starting from a more recent date; 2) Remove Reports and
associated Policies that you will never use.

We recovered over 200GB of space used by Policies that we will not
really utilise.



Event Data:

Check all your Data Retention policies, including the Raw Data
Retention....the current sizes of each policy should display.
