VCSA log full issue

We are using ESXI 6.0 with VCSA installed. Almost every three month, we unable to startup vcenter services due to the disk space full especially on this file /var/log/audit/audit.log. Normally I have to manually SSH to the server and delete this file before the disk full but I am unable to predict when the file is going to fully occupied the disk.

1. Is there a way to prevent this file from growing or fully occupied the disk space like retention policy?

2. Will upgrade to 6.5/6.7 prevent this kind of issue happen again?

3. Will increasing the hdd space able to solve this issue?

Thanks

I also notice that /storage/log is quite full, and if you're on 6.0 U2 you could be hitting this issue as well (which was fixed in U3).

Hi daphnissov,

Currently we are using 6.0 U1 only. Will try to update it to U3 and see whether it solves our issue or not. Thanks.
