Issue With Log Disk Exhaustion

VMWare Appliance 7.0.2

If I run the command df -h I can see that my log disk is close to full. Size 20G Used 16G Avail 2.8G Use% 86

If I run this command,  du -sh ./vmware  I can see that the vmware folder on the log disk is using 2.1G

There are 2 other folders in /storage/log and they are empty. Where are the other 14GB of used disk? I should have almost 18G free I would think.

I've reported your thread so a moderator should move it to the area for vCenter Server.

Go to /storage/log/vmware/ and run below commands to find what is taking space.

du -shc *
du -skhxc /storage/log/vmware/* | sort -n

Have a look at vmware KB#76563.

It's not difficult to clear up and requires no downtime.
