The following can be used to free up disk space: 

  1. If running Linux or Solaris, remove any core files from the $SPECROOT directory and it's sub directories *.core files can be found most often in the $SPECROOT/SS and $SPECROOT/SS/DDM directories. If running Windows, remove any *.dmp and *.mdmp files from the $SPECROOT/SS/support and $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/support directories.

  2. Remove older backup files from the $SPECROOT/SS-DB-Backup directory (or the directory you have configured to save your backup files to)

  3. Remove older installation logs from the $SPECROOT/Install-Tools/LOGS directory.

  4. Cut down on the number of days worth of events saved to the DDM database. By default, 45 days worth of events are saved. This can be changed in the $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/.configrc file with the "MAX_EVENT_DAYS" parameter. If changed, you will need to restart the Archive Manager for the change to take affect. Please reference the "Database Management Guide" for more details.

  5. Run the and scripts periodically to reclaim disk space. These are located under the $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/scripts directory and their usage is detailed in our TechDocs under the following section:
