Disk full

Hi all,

I have a problem with my Qlik Sense Enterprise installation. The hard disk is rapidly filling up (se below).

I have not paid attention to the disk space used until I got a warning about full disk last week. Today I created some space (~20Gb) but it has already been filled up. Server has been running without any problem since may this year.

Hope someone can tell me if this is normal behaviour for Qlik? If not, what is wrong and how do I fix it?

Thanks,

Peter

That's most likely the logging that's stored in the QLogs database. You can change the logging configuration to for example set a maximum size of that database or the age of the log entries or disabling logging to the database altogether.  See the online help page for more information: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/November2018/Subsystems/PlanningQlikSenseDeployments/Content/Sense...

Thank you, you are completely right. It is the QLogs database.

I changed the configuration and set the maximum size to 40GB but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

log_entries is 77GB

archive_entries is 35GB

Do I need to do something else to free up space from DB?

What does 'last_forced_db_trim' mean? Can I force a trim of the DB?

Yes, see the online help page I posted about. There are archive and purge commands you can use. You will probably also want to vacuum the postgresql database. See the postgresql documentation for the vacuum command.
