Maxfilesize for subdirectory

virendrata

WARNING wafl.dir.size.max.warning: Directory /vol/Snapmirror_Mails(1)/mail/v3store/34398/...../Maildir/.Old_Mails/cur/ is approaching the maxdirsize limit. Current maxdirsize limit is less than the default maxdirsize. Reduce the number of files in the directory, or use the "vol options" command to increase the maxdirsize limit for the volume containing the indicated directory.

 

We are getting the above error on NetApp messages. Is there any way we can find out maxfile-size (max files limiatation) of a sub-directory inside the directory.

Hi Sahana,

 

Thanks for the revert.

 

But still my question is the same is there any way we can find out the maxdirsize for the subdirectories inside the directory.

the configuration is per volume and not a folder.

the alert itself indicates that there is a folder that reaching the limit this setting is currently configured for
