In an older pod of legacy VM’s, we have VCSA v5.5 running on some VMWare ESX 5.5 hosts. Recently the VCSA stopped connecting, and this is usually due to a full volume. Usually we SSH in and clear /var/log LDAP logs or something similar.
This time, the root volume was OK. What was full was the POSTGRES volume (df -h –> 0 available). Looking further, I saw that this was because of the /storage/db/vpostgres/pg_log folder was full of logs.
I see there are articles that describe adding another disk and expanding the partition into that new disk, etc … but can I just delete these PG_LOGS ? They go back about 2 years and they’re not purging, and some get pretty big.
