I am using Qlik-Sense and my server Hard Drive Capacity is running low
1.I would like to know if there are temporary files or folders that can be deleted .
2. We are using 97% of our server Hard Drive is it possible it causes latency for Qlik-sense users ?
QlikSense writes lots of .logs file stored loacally in the server hard drive but these logs are never deleted by the qlik services.
Try to check your server's logs folder and delete the olders files:
You can find all logs path here:
Check the "\Script" (%ProgramData%\Qlik\Sense\Log\Script) and the "ArchivedLogs" folders ... usually are the heaviest logs folders.
Have you narrow down what folder is consuming majority of the disk space? By default we can blame Qlik product to be the responsible of this behavior, however, unless you made you shared folder ( for the Shared persistance) into you C drive, it should not consumed the disk space. With my experience, it can be a windows issue, when it either creating random Temp files due to a failed windows update, or pagefile.sys, or many more. I would like to understand where is mostly the disk is consuming space and then we can conclude what to do next.
Qlik does not do much in the Windows folder, so I cannot say for sure here. There is a temp folder with "windows" but nothing to do with Qlik. I would suggest to get with you IT team.
One question, how have you configured your windows server swap file ?
windows by itself consumes a lot of space for swap which can be then manually managed.
If your server have a lot of ram, windows will consume a lot of hard drive space for the swap without consistent reason.
Qlik by itself is not consuming any space on window folder.
