Hi,

I'm having this message popping up and can't find where all the disk space is being used - "Alert: HiveManager disk usage has exceeded 89% of capacity. Please archive or purge existing data to free more disk space."

Someone may have already come across this problem already.

Thx in advance.

Hi Mike,

Yes I had and followed through the instructions and managed to regain 1%, so not the answer.

Thx for the reply.

Rats. Okay, sorry that didn't help. Did you recently upgrade your HiveManager or move it from one partition to another? I'm the HiveOS product manager so I'm not a good person to troubleshoot HiveManager, but I believe that the memory and disk requirements did go up in recent releases and I wonder if that could be relevant. My best advise, unless someone else here can chime in, is to contact your reseller or our support organization, who could help you troubleshoot and remedy this.

I received the same pop-up message today. I looked at the "show me how" and decided to use the CLI approach to clear all of my logs and reduce the report settings as low as I could. (I am running 6.0r2a)

I am using the virtual hive manager appliance and I was wondering if I can just add some disk space to the virtual machine. I really don't want to just clear all logs and keep report retention to a minimum.

Dennis,
Yes, you should be able to do that. I am not an expert on HiveManager, especially the on-premises version, but I have seen conversations internally that suggest there's two approaches to this:

1) Increase disk size, and reinstall HM using the ISO.
2) Deploy a 64BIT HM-VA, and use it as external DB. Restore Data afterwards.
