The Qlik Data Movement repagent service does not start

Last Update:

Attempting to start the Data Movement server on Linux (service repagent start) fails with the following error:

Failed to start service


One of following  error messages can be seen in the repsrv.log file in such scenarios.

Failed to write file

Failed to write entire file


The root cause is likely a lack of storage. See the Data Movement system requirements for details: Recommended hardware. Either free up storage by removing unnecessary files or directories, or increase the available capacity. 

To verify current capacity run df -h from the root ( / ) directory.

To review which directories take up the most space run the following from root:

sudo du -h --max-depth=1 | sort -rh

To find files larger than 100MB which may clutter the storage, run: 

sudo find / -type f -size +100M -exec ls -lh {} \;



Directory has reached 100% capacity and has consumed all of the storage that was available.
