Disk usage for / exceeds limit, 95 percent in use, cleaning filesystem

Hello,

 

Since upgrading PA-200 to 8.0, we’re having disk space issue more often.

It seems to be due to excess logging, which we clear up.
Is there a way to automatically clear these logs once the disk hits a lower threshold?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi There, 

 

Depends which partition is filling up. run the cmd below;

 

>show system disk-space 

 

and post. 

 

We can chenage retention periods of traffic logs, delete pan-os version not in use, old configs, old log files, 

 

sometimes pan tac need to be called in to clear the root partition  through root access.. 

 

Best regards, 

 

Rob
