How can the health log file be limited?

Hi,

I have a small cluster of 4 nodes. Disk space usage for /home in all CVMs are increasing fast. After some investigation it appears that the /data/logs folder is taking majority of space, more specifically health_server.log file which is taking about 181gb now.

 

18133488        health_server.log.20201224-141301
1144624 sysstats

 

Does the health_server.log file keep collecting indefinitely, there must be a limit to this log file?

 

Thanks.

Hey @Beg , Nutanix is aware of an issue in NCC 4.0.0, Where the health_server logs might not rotate as expected and instead end up filling /home partition. I think this matches the issue mentioned in KB-10530. This issue has been resolved in NCC version NCC-4.0.0.1, Please upgrade to this version to permanently resolve the issue. Please go through the above KB for more details.
 

 

If not the above, can you check this KB http://portal.nutanix.com/kb/1540 for troubleshooting high /home partition space usage issues?

Hey @Beg Glad the issue is now resolved. Let me know if I can help in any other way.:smile:

Thank you @AnishWalia20 , upgrading to NCC-4.0.0.1 fixed this issue. /home folder size is down to normal range now on all CVMs.
