When looking at the dashboard in the PAM GUI, one or more of the appliances is showing high HDD utilization.


The two biggest reasons this may occur are...

- Log files are not rotating properly, causing them to grow in size. There was a known issue with 3.2.x where the logs would not rotate that was resolved in 3.3.x, but if the HDD was already low on space, then the rotation will fail.
- There is a large number of core files on the server due to a known issue


CA PAM 3.3.0, 3.3.1, or 3.3.2


Open a case with support so an engineer can SSH to the appliance and clean up the logs and/or core files.

Additional Information

For the core dumps issue, this was resolved in either 3.3.3 or 3.4.0 PAM.

Resolved Issues in 3.3.3
