2.4.11 has been working fine for a while, but last Friday shut down because the dedicated drive for backups (2T drive, 1.8T usable by urbackup) filled up. Nothing in the logs other than a warning, then error, about not enough free space. I have the Global soft filesystem quota set to 85%, but apparently that’s not enough to keep things from filling up. Is there another option I should be setting?
After a reboot, the system ‘cleaned’ up enough to bring it down to 96% full, but that doesn’t seem like its going to be enough.
Hi! Same situation that on servers before.
I use this maintenance scenario:
- Stop urbackup server service.
- Use this commands from cli:
sudo urbackupsrv repair-database
sudo urbackupsrv defrag-database
sudo urbackupsrv remove-unknown
sudo urbackupsrv cleanup --amount 85
last command option use with quota that you configured.
Some commands execution can take a while…
Also restart server, but if you use Linux check that system moves partition to read-only mode due fstab settings.
Please don’t use those commands without knowing what they do and having an indication that they would fix the problem.
The ‘urbackupsrv cleanup’, from the man page description, seemed to be ‘safe’ enough and did free up enough room for things to start working again.
I’d agree, I would think I’d not need to run command line tools to keep the server running. Am I mis-interpreting what the “Global soft filesystem quota” setting is for, and is there some other/better way to make sure the server doesn’t fill up the drive.
