Troubleshooting Disk Space

Running out of disk space can have a severe impact on the SUSE Manager database and file structure which, in most cases, is not recoverable.

SUSE Manager monitors free space in specific directories, and has configurable alerts. For more on space management, see administration:space-management.adoc.

You can recover disk space by removing unused custom channels and redundant database entries before you run out of space entirely.

For instructions on how to delete custom channels, see administration:channel-management.adoc.

Procedure: Resolving redundant database entries
  1. Use the spacewalk-data-fsck command to list any redundant database entries.

  2. Use the spacewalk-data-fsck --remove command to delete them.
