Traps logs question for Linux

L1 Bithead

Can anyone tell me where log files are generated and stored for Linux installations? We had an incident and I'm not sure if this was due to excessive logging or not. Xinetd was blocked by default policy which started Friday afternoon. Today when we came in one of the drives was full although not sure from what. 


I used /opt directory for traps installer and there is now a directory in /opt named Traps with a bunch of folders. only 5GB in space total. 


Any assistance would be much appreciated. Using version for Linux installs.


Thank you




First, I would recommend to reach out to Palo Alto Endpoint support. They are a great team of engineers that can help determine any issues you may be facing. The quota part is for all of the Traps agent folders, which contains the logs. Normally the quarantine folder would the culprit of space being taken up. Again, the support team can help answer these questions, and are available for a remote session, if you think that will resolve the issue faster.
