Error Message : Not enough space

Unable to login to the Applications Manager client and/or Jobs on an Agent all go into a LAUNCH ERROR status.

The folloiwng error messages can be seen in the RmiServer###.log and/or the AgentService###.log file(s):

ErrorMsg: AwE-9999 Internal error (11/7/11 11:44 AM)
Details: null Not enough space

However, there may not be an error when all jobs go into a LAUNCH ERROR status.  This can be tested if this issue is being encountered by going to the Agent's out directory and tryping to manually create a file.  If it fails due to no space available then you are experiencing this issue.


Cause type:
Root Cause: The root issue is specific to the processes not coming up correctly or being unable to create required files on the agent to launch a job because of space/memory related issues.


OS Version: N/A


This is something that needs to be checked with the System Administrator of the machine(s). The solutions include:

  • Check/increase swap space on Unix/Linux based systems or look into increase actual RAM/memory.
  • Check usage of hard drive space on the AM and/or '/' partition.
  • Free up space on the agent itself.
