In Rally on-premises 2.0, the log files are filling the disk and not being rotated out.
This article may also be used to clear out log files for other reasons, such as high growth.
This is a known issue in 2.0 but has been resolved in 2.1
Release : 2.0
The resolution is to upgrade to version 2.1.0 of Rally on-premises.
As a workaround, it is possible to delete the files manually
SSH into the application server
Run the following command
$ docker ps | grep _alm
17f009a362a1 10.17.67.114:9874/rallysoftware-ac2go-alm:23677-2.0.1 "run /_run/start_ser…" 8 days ago Up 8 days 7001/tcp repl10aeecc4_alm.1.pg4ykc4066094y5dv44xnugfr
Make a note of the container ID in the far left
Use that container ID to run the following command:
$ docker exec -it 17f009a362a1 bash
Next change directory to the application logs directory with the following command:
$ cd /mnt/logs/alm
There are several classes of logs that can be deleted:
Log files are compressed by date using year-month-date notation.
Only delete as many log files as you are comfortable purging. It is recommended to maintain 30 days of logs if the size of the logs is not overly large and causing issues.
To delete all application.log files from 2019, use a command as follows:
$ rm application.log.2019-*
To delete all access.log files from March of 2020, use a command as follows:
$ rm access.log.2020-03-*
