    vcenter 6.5 U2g, Filesystem holding VMware Postgres service error logs is running low on available space

    sentove Lurker

      I have a vcenter 6.5 U2g, that shows the warning "Filesystem holding VMware Postgres service error logs is running low on available space"

       

      I tried to find the reason via ssh with 'df -h' and saw, that the consumption is at 'storage/log/'

      Filesystem                                Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

      tmpfs                                     1.0M     0  1.0M   0% /var/spool/snmp

       

      With a 'du -k' i found, that there is the directory '/storage/log/vmware/esx' with a consumption of 28G.

      Four of my ESXi-Hosts are storing Logfiles with several GBs inside.

       

      What can i do to prevent this? Do I have to limit a setting in the syslog collector?
