PAN self-cleanup

Does all the partitions showing below has self cleaning Capabilities or there is a need to manually clear those files like for eg I know old downloaded software can be deleted to free some space from  panrepo partition?

 

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 16G 5.7G 8.7G 40% /
/dev/sda5 16G 2.2G 13G 16% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6 12G 5.0G 5.8G 46% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs 7.9G 210M 7.6G 3% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8 51G 791M 48G 2% /opt/panlogs
tmpfs 12M 0 12M 0% /opt/pancfg/mgmt/lcaas/ssl/private

Re: PAN self-cleanup

@ansmittal,

 

PAN-OS file system runs mechanism by default to clear disk-space. But in some cases, we need to manually clear disk space. 

 

/panrepo partition include all the downloaded PAN images. This can be clear manually from CLI/GUI.

/panlogs partition contains all logs and and those gets clear with cleanup mechanism.

 

You can even cleanup log files manually using below cli commands,

 

> delete debug-log ?
> cp-log      Remove cp-log at /opt/var.cp/log/pan/
> dp0-log     Remove dp0-log at /opt/var.dp0/log/pan/
> dp1-log     Remove dp1-log at /opt/var.dp1/log/pan/
> dp2-log     Remove dp2-log at /opt/var.dp2/log/pan/
> mp-global   Remove mp-global at /opt/mp-global/
> mp-log      Remove mp-log at /var/log/pan/

 

 Hope it helps!

Re: PAN self-cleanup

@SutareMayur Thanks for your reply, Just wondering does the panrepo also clears up automatically,like old downloaded  software and content updates?

@ansmittal,

 

Your manual intervention is required to delete old downloaded software and content updates. (yes, /panrepo also include content updates along with software images. ). Those downloaded images are there for easy revert back to old version if required.
