/vol/logs is full

/vol/logs is full (using or reserving 99% of space and 0% of inodes, using 94% of reserve).

I am getting this message in filerview on the main page.

but in windows this volume is hardly being used. any idea how to clear this up?


/vol/logs is full


could you provide these outputs?

filer> df -g /vol/logs

This would help,

/vol/logs is full

any idea? I set fractional reserve to 0 and still shows as 100% used. what does 100% used mean?

Re: /vol/logs is full

You said /vol/logs is full but in the output you've posted it's /vol/testvol and /vol/vol1 that show as 100% utilised?

Fractional Reserve is for something completely different i.e. if you have LUNs in the volume which I'm assuming is not the case here?

What does 100% used mean?

It means used to 100%...

The two volumes have a snap reserve set, you can lower this with:

filer> snap reserve testvol 10

And then you should have a little free space in the volume. Your snapshot space is basicaly unused, so no problem doing this.

The other way would be to create a cifs share and connecting to it to see what is using this space in the volume:

filer> cifs shares -add testvol /vol/testvol

connect and see.

If there are LUNs in these volumes (even if they are empty) they will use the space you set them to be (e.g. 95GB or 160GB).

If you want the space only be marked as used when you write to the LUN, then change the volume to "thin-provisioned":

filer> vol options testvol guarantee none

If there are LUNs in these volumes, it is "recommended" to set the snap reserve to 0 (zero).

Hope this helps.


/vol/logs is full


additonal : you have to set

filer> vol options testvol guarantee none


filer> lun set reservation /vol/testvol/lun disable

then you see only the used space from your lun


/vol/logs is full

If you have LUN's in that volume's ,what is the Size of that?
