couple of questions of regard to disk.

L3 Networker

Hello All.

I’d like to know few things with respect to disk.

1. is it available to change Max disk size on PAN device?

In case of max disk size of PAN2050 is only allocated about45GB by default, even though total size of disk is about 160G.

So, I’d like to change default max size, if it possible.

2. Let me know default Max disk size of every each PAN appliances.

PA 500:


PA2050: approximately 45GB


PA4050: approximately 120GB




3. what kind of disk type does PA appliances have??

PA 5000series has a SSD type disk. But there is no information about rest of appliances.

SATA?? or SCSI??

Please let me know about my questions.

The amount of size "allocated" is what it reserves for logs/etc.  There is other space used for things like firmware storage, debug logging, etc.  I highly doubt that this is user-configurable, but I am curious to hear what PAN reps say.

The disk in a 20xx series is a normal SATA drive, I believe ours is a Western Digital or Seagate, IIRC it was 7200RPM though.

Thanks for comment.
but i need more information according to my questions that above.
default max size of each PAN appliance  and etc.

From one of our PAN 500 devices running 4.0.2:

>show system disk-space

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3             3.8G  886M  2.8G  25% /
/dev/sda5             7.6G  4.5G  2.7G  64% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6             3.8G  1.5G  2.2G  40% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs                 493M   37M  456M   8% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8             125G   12G  107G  10% /opt/panlogs

From one of our PAN 2020 devices running 4.0.2:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3             3.8G  1.1G  2.5G  31% /
/dev/sda5             7.6G  6.4G  781M  90% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6             3.8G  2.4G  1.3G  66% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs                 493M   37M  456M   8% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8              51G   31G   18G  65% /opt/panlogs

Uhm...PAN 500 with twice and more PAN 2020 hard disk (sda8) ?? Strange...

It would be useful to have a SpechSheet containing the various hard disk size per each device.

They should be the same now (160 GB).  I suspect the 2020 shown is an older model that used to come with a smaller HD. (I think it was 80 GB).  Only the PA-5000 has the option for 120 GB and 240 GB SSD.
