VDP Appliance is nearly full or full. Recover space.


Average rating: based on feedback from one user
Information >

Problem Description
VDP:[002] The VDP storage is nearly full.
Or
VDP:[003] The VDP storage is full.

Diagnostic Steps
The alarms itself are self-explanatory.
Check Filesystem status in vdp.
root@vdp:~/ (mailto:root@vdp:~/)#: df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda2 32G 6.2G 24G 21% /

udev 7.8G 144K 7.8G 1% /dev

tmpfs 7.8G 0 7.8G 0% /dev/shm

/dev/sda1 128M 37M 85M 31% /boot

/dev/sda7 1.5G 199M 1.2G 15% /var

/dev/sda9 138G 13G 118G 10% /space

/dev/sdc1 1.0T 867G 157G 85% /data01

/dev/sdd1 1.0T 861G 163G 85% /data02

/dev/sdb1 1.0T 864G 160G 85% /data03

The difference between file system space as above, and reported by vdp as in the screenshot should not be much. Big difference means that

daily VDP maintenance is not able to recover space efficiently. 1/7
Solution
5/9/2019 Product Support Portal - Article

The solution to this problem is to run Garbage collection manually. It may have to be done multiple times to claim more space.
Step1: Delete old backup starting from the oldest date. It has to be done from VDP restore tab as shown below. This step will free raw space in
the filesystem.

Step2: Check that maintenance scheduler is not running.

The above bold line shows that it is running. If running, it is better to wait for it to finish.
Also check the status of maintenance scheduler, and backup scheduler.

Step6: Run Garbage Collection

orphansfirst="false"/>

Note: timeout=<how many seconds should GC run>. Keep it sufficient, approximately 2 hours is required because default GC run time is 3600
seconds.

Step7: Confirm that GC has started.
