Hi Sir,

Yes, as for now my disk usage "df -h" is full. We have plan to extend
the disk space for primary storage using third-party. But eventually the
issue still not resolve it will happen again, when primary disk reach it
threshold with new space. We try not to play with retention period. We
try to utilize the feature that sentinel provide, as it have feature to
move data to secondary storage when threshold reach.

If there is misconfiguration , let me know. As same configuration we
apply to our test environment version sentinel 7.3, no issue happen.

Re: ver7.3.2 - Primary disk not moving data to secondary disk


Code:
--------------------
ps -ef | grep -i mksquash
--------------------


You may also want to check server0.0.log for issues with mksquash build
process and also for any "Error RAWDATA"....

We had issues where a partial index.sqfs.building file had started on
the secondary, but due to crash/sentinel end process, the partial file
stopped the regeneration due to its existence....a simple delete of the
file and the mksquash started as expected.

Re: ver7.3.2 - Primary disk not moving data to secondary disk


Try this and let us know the results:


Code:
--------------------
cd /var/opt/novell/sentinel
du -h --max-depth=1
--------------------


If your 3rdparty directory is the one hogging the disk, have a look at

Re: ver7.3.2 - Primary disk not moving data to secondary disk


Half your space is being taken up by non-event raw data....you may want
to consider cleaning up database backups, etc...

As 46% (22G of 48G) is taken up by 3rdparty, you may want to consider
changing your data retention policy so that it starts moving at 50%
(rather than 90% = 43G) - this will give you an event data allocation of
24GB. Your minimum amount to store can then be adjusted accordingly.

At the moment with your 90%/75%, your telling the system to move data
when 43GB is used and stop when 36GB is used....this would result in
only 14GB of actual event data in primary as 22GB is taken by 3rdparty.

This confusion is why my articles suggests having partition points as
follows so the data retention policy actually relates to event data
allocation:

/var/opt/novell/sentinel/3rdparty
/var/opt/novell/sentinel/data
/var/opt/novell/sentinel/log

Re: ver7.3.2 - Primary disk not moving data to secondary disk


Please also check if you have data retention configured properly for
every data synchronization extension.
Storage -> data synchronization -> check "Retention period:" by default
it set to null which can cause big issue.
