you can opt to store less config versions and config backups to free up space, but then you have to ask the question: which is more important, backups or empty space 😉


in Panorama > Setup > Management > Logging and Reporting Settings > Log Export an Reporting, you can decrease the default 100 versions and 100 backups

hi reaper:

thanks your replay, but  

1:How can I confirm how many backup configurations and versions take up most of OPT / pancfg space

2:if set Number of Versions for Config Audit  50        

              Number of Versions for Config Backups  50      

that can free up space in opt/pancfg ?

There is a CLI command to reduce the disk quota for device monitoring e.g.

>debug management-server device-monitoring disk-quota set size <size>


It might not be available on some older PanOS.


PanOS 10.2 provides a new command which lets you see the pancfg disk usage in detail:

>show system pancfg-directory-usage
