    ESXI SSD Host Cache down to 5% avail

    jasondanieladams Lurker

      Hi all,

       

      While I do know my way around VMWare, I'm not particularly up to par on SAN/CACHE, etc.

       

      So we have this Host. The host has a couple of datastores for the whopping 2 VM's on there (it's old and on the way out).

       

      The SSD drive devoted as Host Cache is 256gb

       

      However, started recently we've been receiving alerts that there is only 5% remaining out of the 256gb.

       

      What is strange to me is the very first file in there is sysSwap-hc-50f94172-620a-3548-9909-001e676b8295.swp which weighs in at 1.48GB. Not anything to write home to mom about. Except, making note of the modification date being 1/18/2020 at 12:07:18. More to come later

       

      Now, at the root level where the file listed above is located, there is also a folder called 50f94172-620a-3548-9909-001e676b8295 but with no modification date on this one.

       

      When you drill down to that folder, there is only one folder under it labeled hostCache and again, has no modification date.

       

      Drive in to HostCache and that's when the world of fun starts. Be ready, lot's to copy and paste. But as a TL:DR, please note the modification date.

       

      Where would I even begin to figure out what these are for, why they are there, how to clean them up, etc.
