High Usage of Root Partition in PA-220 After upgradre to 10.1 version

L4 Transporter

Hi Team,


After upgradation of PAN-OS 10.1.x version we are facing High Root Partition issue in our firewall. 


Even after manually clean the logs after 5 days it is back to high, Is there any particular reason the partition usage is high ?

Make sure you are running a recommend version:


Delete the older software packages in Device->Software.

I would recommend going to 10.1.6.



Could you please share, how were you able to reduce the root partition usage?




Its average usage 90% to 92 %

As per paloalto its normal no any impact to device 

auto file cleaning system works better @95 %




Arvind_Kumar would you have any documentation that supports your statement?

Its Tested By Palo alto & confirmed there is no issue to download & install any other OS & Definitions also
